@stagnesturtle rocks #MuseumWeek

From 25 – 31 March 2014, St Agnes Museum joined museums large and small (mainly large!) from different countries in the first-ever #MuseumWeek on Twitter.

Each day under our Twitter name @stagnesturtle we tweeted on a different theme. These included #AskACurator, #MuseumMastermind and #MuseumSelfies, where our curator posed for a self-portrait alongside The Lady Agnes figurehead! It was a great experience for our Turtle to share Twitter space with the V&A, the British Museum and the Ashmolean and good national exposure for a small local museum. Our followers doubled in number to almost 400 during the week, with lots of re-tweets and favourites along the way. We really are part of the digital age here at St Agnes Museum, so do follow us @stagnesturtle for news from the museum and the parish of St Agnes.
