Social media is a great way for you to keep up with Museum activities. We have profiles on several platforms, and encourage you to connect with us on at least one of them.
Facebook: We use Facebook to showcase photos from recent events, to advertise coming events, and to share community news. Users can comment on the content and staff will reply directly.
Twitter: Twitter is for short, frequent updates (really short: the maximum is 140 characters). We share updates about our own events, as well as information about community activities, heritage events and workshops we attend.
Blog: We use the blog to share longer articles about our activities, exhibits or ongoing research, to advertise job opportunities, and to profile our summer staff and the vendors in our Old-Fashioned Christmas & Outdoor Artisan Market. While most blog posts are written by staff, some of our volunteers contribute, too.
Instagram: Every Wednesday we share a photograph of an artefact from the Museum’s collection for our weekly #WhatsItWednesday hashtag theme. Occasionally we post photos from our daily activities, too.
YouTube : On our YouTube channel, we share promotional videos about the Museum and the Ottawa Museum Network, recordings from our programs and activities, and videos about our community.
Pinterest: Pinterest is an online pin board, a place to collect visual links to your favourite things. On our Pinterest page you’ll find boards about our exhibits, instructions for our Family Craft Day activities, inspiration for our Yap and Yarn knitting group, tips on displaying your personal treasures at home, and seasonal craft ideas for your family.
Google Plus: We’ve just started using Google Plus, but it is a great place to find quick information about our hours and location. We welcome a review of your experience at the Museum!
LinkedIn: If you have a LinkedIn profile and have worked or volunteered with the Museum, please connect with us here. It is a great way to stay in touch.
