Picture Us

Today is Picture a Museum Day. Across the world, museums are sharing pictures of what goes on behind the scenes, and people are taking their own pictures from museums and also sharing them.

We’re taking part by sharing a set of pictures showing the installation of materials from the Wellcome Library in our new Dirt exhibition which opens next week. You can see a selection of the photos in the gallery above, and the full set on Flickr.

Meanwhile, during the day, our Visitor Services Assistants will be taking pictures of a day in the life of Wellcome Collection, and we’ll post those at the end of the day.

If you’re visiting us today, we’d be delighted if you take pictures yourself (but please leave the flash off) showing us what you find interesting, and what the objects in Wellcome Collection mean to you. You can add them to the #MuseumPics Flickr pool. You can add your pictures to the Wellcome Collection Flickr pool today and any day of the year – we always love to see your pictures, especially of our events.

If you’re on Twitter, you can tweet the pics – use the hashtag #MuseumPics (and drop us a mention at @ExploreWellcome so we can retweet the best).

We look forward to seeing your pictures!
