Museum launches social media campaign, and more

The Westport Museum for History and Culture recently launched a #WhatsYourWestport? social media campaign.

Museum visitors are invited to write in a hashtag phrase or a “post” about their favorite Westport things on an oversized Polaroid-style frame and take a picture. They can then post the image on social media and tag the Museum on Instagram @westporthistorymuseum and Twitter @westporthistory.

The campaign is part of the museum’s oral history work. It’s free and available during the museum’s hours of operation.

People can also take the frame off the museum grounds for up to an hour for the project as long as they leave a deposit in case it is damaged or lost.

The museum is located at 25 Avery Place.
