Tyler's Chair outside Temple Room with #MuseumWeek logoThe House of the Temple in Washington, DC (aka @MasonicMuseum) is excited to be participating once again in #MuseumWeek 2017! #MuseumWeek is a Twitter-based, social media campaign designed to generate excitement about museums and libraries of all sizes and types—all over the world. This year’s event—a little later this year—will take place June 19–25, 2017.

#MuseumWeek connects this vast network of museums and libraries through a series of shared hashtags*, and each day has its own unique focus.

This year’s planned themes (in no particular order yet) are:

#storiesMW
#musicMW
#foodMW
#heritageMW
#booksMW
#travelsMW
#sportsMW

Participating in #MuseumWeek is easy! If you don’t already, follow @MasonicMuseum on Twitter to receive our posts (tweets) in your feed. If you want to see what other museums are talking about, search #MuseumWeek or, more specifically, each day’s themed hashtag (listed above) and view posts from thousands of participating institutions around the globe!

Do you have a question or suggestion for us regarding #MuseumWeek? Is there something in particular you would like to see? Please tweet it to us via @MasonicMuseum or email journal@scottishrite.org.
