    4. 4. • Museums help you ask new questions. You get a little knowledge and crave more. • Because they make me feel excited, like a child. They open up the world and expose the tiny little bubble we all live in. • Museums are for EVERYONE. They are somewhere to shed our skin and set free the inquisitive child in each of us. • They promote creativity, freedom of choice, questioning, reason, understanding and identity! • Because they’re a conversation between what has happened, what could happen, and what will happen. • Who says I love museums? Sometimes they get me so frustrated I guess only love would be reason for staying. • Because I love looking at beautiful / interesting / entertaining things that exist in the real world not just cyberspace. @mardixon/@culturethemes
    5. 5. #MusMovember “For our November theme we decided it would be fun (and important) to join in on the Movember movement. What is Movember? It’s a great initiative to support prostate and testicular cancer. The idea is for men to raise funds for the charity by growing a moustache. For our part, we would like museums, art galleries and museum people to show off their moustaches! How? Using the #MusMovember tag, share photos of your paintings, items, artefacts or museum people that have moustaches.” @mardixon/@culturethemes
