Yorkshire museum hosts a curator battle with other museums online based on a particular theme.


All public places, meant for tourism or entertainment, have been shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Museums, amusement parks, monuments and other spaces of gatherings have brought their shutters down.

Yorkshire Museum, England, however, has devised a plan for its fellow museums to stay active and going during the lockdown period. On every Friday, the body hosts a curator battle with other museums online based on a particular theme.

Tweeting a picture of a hair bun from the burial of a Roman lady on April 17, it started the ‘Creepiest Object’ themed curator battle. This immediately sparked a viral spree.



The tweet read, “Museums Assemble! It’s time for #Curatorbattle! Today’s theme, chosen by you, is #CreepiestObject! We’re kicking things off with this 3rd/ 4th century hair bun from the burial of a #Roman lady, still with the jet pins in place… Can you beat it?”





Take a look at the tweets and decide which object managed to creep you out the most –the mermaid skeleton from National Museums Scotland, broken dolls from c. 1920 or a sheep’s heart stuck with pins and nails from circa 1911.
