The Port Macquarie Museum will celebrate International Museum Selfie Day with free entry and plenty of selfie opportunities on Wednesday January 16.
The day is from 9.30am until 4.30pm.
Port Macquarie Museum president Clive Smith says the international event will see free entry to the day.
“International Museum Selfie Day is aimed at raising awareness of our history and cultural material collections and encourages people to visit and interact with museums and collections in different and creative ways,” Mr Smith said.
“This year we are offering free entry for the day to encourage as many people as possible to take part and have organised a branded selfie photo frame for those special photos.
“We will also be offering more hands-on exhibits across the day to help people create that special selfie and a unique memory of their visit to our museum.”
Visitors will be invited to share their selfies at #PortMacquarieMuseum.
Mr Smith said thanks to technology, museums like ours are increasingly able to reach and connect with audiences worldwide and to find new people to share our collections and stories with.
“International Museum Selfie Day is yet another way we are making our collections and their stories accessible and encourages our visitors to review and share their experiences on social media.
“International Museum Selfie Day provides an opportunity to explore the local history collections of the Port Macquarie Museum, learn new things, have some fun, create memories, share experiences and stories and is a great school holiday activity for people of all ages.”
International Museum Selfie Day is on Wednesday January 16, from 9.30am until 4.30pm.
The Port Macquarie Museum is located at 22 Clarence Street, Port Macquarie, within Port Macquarie’s cultural precinct. Enquiries phone 02 6583 1108.
