#MuseumWeek: museums opening their doors ... on Twitter.

A really fun and interesting scheme take place between March 24-30 and is primarily intended for those, whose lives are limited to 140 characters. Apparently museums are trying to connect with the smartphone generation and for that, they deserve an applause.
The official hashtag #MuseumWeek unites museums around the world and the list of official participants can be found here. There are no Slovene museums on this particular list, but the organisers say anyone can join in the fun, by using the #MuseumWeek hashtag.
We did a little research about Slovene participants and so far we've only found two. The International Centre of Graphic Arts and the National Museum of Contemporary History. Check these out on their Twitter pages here and here.
 
Tweet away and don't foget to visit an actual museum from time to time. You know, the ones with dinosaur bones and such.
