Recap of @CultureThemes #Museum101 event – museums sharing creepy items

February 15th – the day after Valentine’s Day.  The perfect day to ask the public,  museums and culture venues internationally to share items they would like to see go into #Museum101 (like George Orwell’s 1984 book and Room 101).

The idea came when I mentioned to Linda Spurdle I was trying to think of a hashtag that would acknowledge the current issues *cough politics cough* but didn’t create a platform that could be turned into something personal. #Museum101 was a perfect solution.

With every CultureThemes, I try to keep the ‘this is what it is/mean’ statement to a minimum to allow people to make it what they want.

Who knew that for over 8+ hours #museum101 would be trending?

#Museum101 even made it to Twitter Moments

I mean who wouldn’t want these in their house?

Stats (what I was able to grab at the end of the night)

Thank you to everyone who took part – it brought many smiles (ok and probably a few nightmares) but it was a nice light relief from the every day fake news situation. 🙂
