Ask-A-Museum Day 2022

Ask A Museum featured

Yesterday was #AskAMuseum Day on social media. We decided to take the opportunity to ask a few Scottish museums on Twitter, who are taking part in Maths Week Scotland, about maths related objects in their collections - and we got some really interesting answers!

We've rounded up all the questions and answers for you below.

We had also invited any other museums who wanted to join in, to answer the questions and share the #MathsInMuseums from their collections, and we got a few responses.
