Save the Date! #InstaMuseum 2015 – Tuesday 23rd June

We’re still reeling from the fantastic response to last week’s Museum Memories Day, and we hope to have a little summary of it available to you soon, but since today is International Museum Day, we thought what better opportunity to announce what’s coming up next!

Following last year’s very successful #InstaMuseum day, where we celebrated museums on Instagram with you all, we’ve listened to the feedback from our friends, fans and followers, and are bringing #InstaMuseum back again this year!


If you joined us last year, you’ll already know what to expect from #InstaMuseum: the event will be a chance to share…

  • your favourite museum Instagram accounts and museum Instagrammers that you follow
  • what you yourself most like to post to Instagram when visiting museums
  • some of your favourite or most popular #InstaMuseum photos
  • interesting museum Instagram projects you may know about
  • helpful tips and advice to other museums or museum lovers wanting to get started on Instagram.

And maybe you’ll even be encouraged to go out that day and take new #InstaMuseum photos to post!

The event will take place across two platforms – Twitter, for discussions and driving traffic to Instagram though sharing links, and of course Instagram itself, for following each other, posting new photos, liking and commenting on photos. Please use the hashtag #InstaMuseum on both Twitter and Instagram to keep everything together.

As you may know, we already maintain a database of Museums on Instagram that we know of, so the event will also be an opportunity to expand that database. Any museum that follows us on Instagram will be added to the database without further having to ask, or you can use the online form to add your museum (or any other museum you know off that’s not on the list yet). Please note that if you add a museum via the form, it won’t appear in the database straight away.

So, save the date in your calendars, and we look forward to chatting and sharing with you on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday 23th June!

PS: And for those of you taking part in Museum Bingo, you can tick off the elusive “take part in a museum Instagram event” square off your bingo card!
