Picture a Museum Day 2011

Blogger: Emma James, Web Content Coordinator

Thursday 17 March was the very first global Picture a Museum Day - the purpose of which was to give people behind-the-scenes access to the world's museums and galleries through Flickr and Twitter.

What a success! The MuseumPics Flickr group now has more than 500 members. Institutions and individuals from across the globe have shared over 6,000 photographs of art, objects, people and spaces from some of the world's best cultural destinations.

Thursday also saw people using their smart phones to post photographs to Twitter using the #MuseumPics hashtag, and days later, it's still generating quite a bit of traffic - another coup for collaborative content creation through social media.

Let's hope the day becomes an annual fixture on the museum calendar. Here's a selection of our photographs from the day - see the rest on our Flickr channel, or go straight to the MuseumPics group to see images from around the world.
