#NIMuseumsDay 2018: 18th May 2018

Join us on Friday 18 May for #NIMuseumsDay – a day dedicated to raising the profile of museums in Northern Ireland. 

Together we can showcase our successes and connect our museum community, the wider cultural sector, the public, and decision makers.

Share on social media what makes our museums interesting, unique and important. From sharing stories that help people understand their past, to bringing communities together, museums are central to life in Northern Ireland. 

Now is the time to come together collectively and shout about it! 

#NIMuseumsDay is a response to the theme for this year’s International Museums Day – ‘Hyperconnected Museums: New Approaches, New Publics’.

Please support our campaign by completing the following steps and help us to make some noise about museums in 2018:

1) Link your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts (personal and organisation) to our Thunderclap campaign to help spread the word.

2) Use the logo and branding on your websites and social media channels
