It’s easy to do, just pick 5-10 objects and follow this simple guide created by Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust.

When you have set up your museum, create and deliver a tour like museums' interactors for others in your home, film your tour or take pictures of your objects to share with others online! Share with SIMT on Facebook or Twitter.
