Last week over 300 UK museums took to Twitter in a nationwide celebration of Britain’s museum culture.

Each day offered a unique theme to showcase different aspects of what our museums have to offer, from Tuesday’s fact-finding #MuseumMastermind theme, to behind-the-scenes insight through #DayInTheLife.

There was even an opportunity to get involved, through the weekend’s #GetCreative challenge, asking Twitter users to take inspiration from one of Britain’s incredible museums to create their own masterpieces.

WST have collected the best posts from the week for teachers to share with their classes, but this is just the tip of the iceberg from the UK’s fantastic museum scene – it really does have to be seen to be believed!
