ESSEX County Council’s Museum Development Officer, Amy Cotterill, is joining museums and galleries from across the UK and Europe on Twitter for the first ever #MuseumWeek, a project that is connecting people to artwork, culture, history and science in new and interactive ways.

#MuseumWeek is taking place from Monday 24th March to Sunday 30th March and gives Twitter users direct and unparalleled access to some of Europe’s leading museums and the people behind them in 140-character bursts.

Amy Cotterill (@EssexMDO) and numerous Essex museums will tweet alongside other UK organisations already signed up – including the Science Museum (@sciencemuseum), the Natural History Museum (@NHM_London), the Victoria and Albert Museum (@V_and_A), the British Museum (@britishmuseum), Eureka! The National Children’s Museum (@eurekamuseum) and the Tate (@Tate).

Amy will join others across the UK and Europe by including the hashtag #MuseumWeek in their Tweets for the week, meaning users can follow along on Twitter.

Every day there will be a different theme including #MuseumSelfies, #AskTheCurator, and #MuseumMemories.

Essex museums participating include: Barleylands (@Barleylands), Combined Military Service Museum (@CMSM4), Epping Forest (@EFDMuseum), Harlow Museum (@ScienceAliveUK), Maldon Museum (@maldonmuseum), The Munnings Collection (@AlfredMunnings), Rayleigh Windmill Museum (@rayleigh_mill), Saffron Walden Museum (@SW_Museum) and Boxted Airfield Museum (@@Boxted1).
