#InstaMuseum Day 2016

October 12, 2016


I love museums and I love Instagram, so creating an event to bring the two together was a no-brainer. #InstaMuseum is an annual worldwide event for championing museums on Instagram, which I run under the auspices of my project, Museum140. Every year, people share their museum photos, highlight interesting exhibitions and shout out to their favourite museums. The museums themselves get involved, too, of course.
With the help of museums, museum lovers and the Instagram community, we have also been building a comprehensive list of ‘Museums on Instagram‘. The ‘Museums on Instagram’ list was started during the first #InstaMuseum day and has since grown to over 1,900 museums. Hopefully we will crack the 2,000 limit soon!
This year’s #InstaMuseum day takes place tomorrow, Thursday 13th October. There are different ways you can take part:
  • Check out the hashtag #InstaMuseum on Instagram to find the most amazing museums
  • Post some museum pics on Instagram yourself – both old pics from your archives and new pics taken on the day are allowed
  • Take part in this year’s #InstaMuseum #MiniBingo challenge (see below)
  • Share  your favourite museum Instagram accounts and museum Instagrammers on Twitter


So, come find me on Instagram and Twitter tomorrow, join in – and don’t forget the hashtag! #InstaMuseum
