Museums in the UK have celebrated ‘Museum Meme Day’ by posting captioned pictures of their artifacts on Twitter which became Hilarious Memes.
The trend seems to have started in the U.K. on Wednesday, but museums around the world began using the #MuseMeme hashtag, not only to show off their collections, but to give patrons a peek at life behind the scenes in the museum world.
The results are every bit as nerdy and wonderful as you might hope.
