Museum Wars

Wednesday was #AskACurator day on Twitter. Many museums had people ready to answers questions from the public. But this one started a war!

The Natural History Museum in London fired the first shot.

The Science Museum, also in London, fired back.

And then it was on. They both started posting pictures of their exhibits in a game of one-upmanship which only the readers won. The whole thing got quite silly at times, but we saw some amazing exhibits, and both museums ended up looking pretty good. And they have a good sense of humor. See the entire battle here. -via Metafilter
