Movember and Culture Themes

Each month Culture Themes sets a topic to discuss on twitter, with the overall aim of promoting museum and galleries. This month the theme is Movember and on Wednesday 21st November museums across the world will be sharing their paintings, artefacts or museum people that have moustaches. You can take part by sharing your photos on twitter using the hashtag #MusMovember.

We are also looking for Scottish museums and galleries to contribute to our Movember photoboard on Pinterest. If you or your museum pin and have some moustache adorned artefacts (or staff!) please email Amy Dale ( with your Pinterest username and you will be added as a pinner for the board.

Big thanks to the British Golf Museum and St Andrews Preservation Trust Museum who have already pinned some intriguing photos!

  1. Here at the Australian National Maritime Museum we’ve been tweeting photographs of some marvellous maritime mo’s via @ANMMuseum. We didn’t think of looking for mo’s in objects, a brilliant idea!
