West Cheshire Museums launch website via Twitter day
16 February 2015A new website will be revealed this week via Twitter day.
West Cheshire Museums unveil a new site that incorporates The Grosvenor Museum, Chester History and Heritage, Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse, Stretton Water Mill and the soon to be opened Lion Salt Works.
The new website brings together all of the Cheshire West and Chester Council museums allowing visitors access to exhibition and event information, opening hours and location details.
To help launch the new site, there will be a new Twitter Day on Friday (February 20). Throughout the day there will be tweets from each of the sites, talking to visitors and staff, looking behind the scenes and reporting on the latest exhibitions.
Twitter Days are two way, questions about the museums will be welcomed during the day with experts on hand to reply.
Councillor Stuart Parker, Executive Member for Culture and Economy, said: “This is our latest Twitter Day giving the opportunity to look behind the scenes of the many services we provide.
“I’m particularly looking forward to this day as it is being used as the official launch for the new website and also starts the countdown to the opening of the Lion Salt Works later in the spring.”
Currently being fitted with new exhibits, the Salt Works was the countries last traditional open-pan salt making site that has now been fully restored. The Lion Salt Works is not open to the public yet but the Twitter Day will report live on progress from the site.
