The 2017 @52Museums Schedule for Instagram & Twitter #52Museums

First, a big thank you to everyone who took part, followed, liked, and got involved with @52Museums on Instagram and Twitter in 2016.  It grew bigger than anyone could have expected.  The evaluation will be shared (once there has been time to process it!)

You can find more information about what it is and how it works here.

The 2017 schedule (and yes this is draft as changes throughout the year does happen):

  1. Hi Mar,

    If the @52Museums project is going ahead for 2018, we at the Old Royal Naval College would love to join. We don’t call ourselves a museum, however, the visitor centre has an extensive collections display and as a heritage site of national importance it would be brilliant if we could join in, especially while the Painted Hall Ceiling Tours are running! We’d be very willing to buddy up too. Would we be eligible?
