BOLTON Museum’s displays were given a modern twist yesterday — with visitors and staff taking “selfies” and posting the pictures on Twitter.

The stunt was part of national Museum Selfie day.

Helen Romaniszyn, marketing officer at the Bolton Museum, said: “We have had a lot of fun taking part and the response from followers on our Twitter page has been wonderful.”

Selfies — pictures that people take of themselves, usually using their mobile phone — were shared on Twitter by museum visitors across the UK with the hashtag #MuseumSelfie.

A council spokesman added: “We are always keen to raise awareness of the great collections which are housed by our museum, ranging from our world famous Egyptology collection to local history and wildlife.”
