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

    This hashtag is to showcase all the brilliant work being done by museums, educators, homeschoolers, etc in addition to providing a platform for families of all sizes to share their favourites related to museums/galleries visits.

    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!
