Third Thursday Twitter Tours
In the Museum | 10 May, 2018 | Museum Blogger
Discover the Mary Rose collection in our irreverent online tours!

The Mary Rose is proud to announce that we're holding Third Thursday Twitter Tours, online tours on Twitter, which look at a number of objects in the Mary Rose on a particular theme. However, rather than just subjects like “The Carpenter”, or “Food and Drink” (though there will be some of that), we’re aiming for a variety of different topics, based on current events, popular culture or just whatever takes the guide's fancy.

Simon Clabby, Digital Marketing Coordinator and former museum guide at The Mary Rose, said "The Mary Rose has an amazing collection, which is explained by our team to our visitors in an entertaining yet educational way, so we wanted to share it with an audience who might otherwise not have been able to experience it.

"Of course, it's no replacement for seeing the real thing, as for every incredible object we show, there's an equally as impressive one just out of frame."

Each tour starts at 3pm on the third Thursday of the month, using the Hashtag “#ThirdThursTours”, and will be followed by questions if any are asked. They will then be collected into a Twitter Moment, so they can be read chronologically. Every object featured in the tour will be on display in the museum, so if you've enjoyed your online tour, why not come and see the real thing

Come and experience the tours over on twitter at @MaryRoseMuseum!
