Have you ever wanted to know about how you look after an Egyptian mummy? Do you ever dream of putting together your own art exhibition? If you'd like to ask some of our museum and gallery curators a question about what they do then read on...

Ask a Curator day is Wednesday 1 September and curators from all over the world are signing up to take part in this giant Q&A session - taking place on Twitter!

We are joining in and want you to ask our curators questions on either art, slavery or Egyptology, as these are their specialist subjects.

We have three great experts ready to answer you; Egyptologist Ashley Cooke, art curator Laura MacCulloch and curator of transatlantic slavery Angela Robinson.

To ask a question and get your reply, this is what you do:

1. Get yourself a Twitter account by going to

2. On 1 September 'tweet' your question with #askacurator at the end to:
@LivMuseums (Art or Egypt questions)
@slaverymuseum (Slavery questions)

3. Check your Twitter account for our response!

So get thinking and tweet us your questions on 1 September!
