You gotta hand it to the museum crew, they own it on social media.
January 20th is #MuseumSelfie Day, where museum lovers are encouraged to post a selfie at a museum to social media in an effort to spread the museum love. It seems to be working well, grabbing a top trending spot on Twitter in the early afternoon.
Now, grab your phone and selfie stick (but watch it around those Greek busts, wouldya?) and snap away! Here's mine from a few years back at the High Museum in Atlanta:
