When we received an email notifying us of #MuseumWeek coming up on Twitter, we couldn’t wait to sign up! What a great way to promote museums, interact with others, see behind closed doors and give people the chance to ask us questions. We were even more excited when we saw the content!
Museum week starts next Monday, the 24th of March and lasts for 7 days. The other National Trust property taking part is our local friend, Charlecote. The nearby Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is aslo participating. The week will see museums tweet about different themes each day. You can follow particular museums accounts, or follow the #MuseumWeek. Really the focus though, is about you, the reader, visitors, participant, and questioner.
What do you want to know about running Upton House and Gardens? Ever wondered exactly how many paintings or pieces of porcelain we have? How many volunteers we have or how we plan our exhibitions?
Have you got any lovely memories of Upton House and Gardens? Was it your first date, the place of your engagement like Emily and Josh, the place you were first inspired to take up gardening after seeing our borders or find out more about fine porcelain or art? Did you start your National Trust journey here or was this the first National Trust visit for a young visitor in your family?
