#museumalphabet, Part 2

September 25th, 2020

To bring their collections to people at home, museums around the world have gotten very creative in sharing items through social media campaigns.  Among the campaigns have been bouquetscreepiest objectsmoments of zen, museum pets, and the best bums.  One campaign we participated in was #museumalphabet.  Over 26 days we shared items from our collection in alphabetical order.  For each letter we also asked our Facebook and Instagram followers to share a person, place or event from Geneva that began with the profiled letter. Last we shared suggestions for letters A to M. Below are some of the suggestions for letters N to Z.  Do you have additions?
