Social media platforms come and go, but Snapchat certainly is sticking around! Here on The Children’s Museum’s social media team, we’ve been watching closely as museums and other brands have gotten super-creative with the snap-and-go messaging app. We’ve come to learn that Snapchat is so much more than disappearing photos. For a museum, it’s really about authentic storytelling. And that’s why—we’re happy to share—we’re diving in!
You can follow The Children’s Museum on Snapchat at username childrensmuseum, or by scanning our snapcode above.
We’re excited to share even more behind-the-scenes moments with you through our snaps. Because, at the world’s largest children’s museum, you never know what you’re going to run into next. One day it’s dinosaurs…the next, astronauts!
We’re joining a number of museums who have taken Snapchat by storm over the last two years. Here are ten of our favorite museum Snapchat accounts. We hope you’ll follow them, too!
