‘View the museum through young people’s eyes.’

Be Creative!

Other Examples:
For #MuseumWeek – encourage your followers to get involved by asking them to share their pictures of their family visits!

Also, ask your staff who run the educational department to really get involved.  #FamilyMW is about families visiting but also the brilliant activities that are available for them when they visit.

If you run a kids club or a young people group and they have their own social media, let them share on the day too.

Most importantly, like all hashtag events, just have fun with it!
