Tim Dunn is Marketing Officer, Friends of the Sierra Leone National Railway Museum in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

1- Why are you personally on Twitter ?

With travel to Sierra Leone difficult, especially with the recent Ebola outbreak, we realised that if the world couldn’t get to the museum – we needed to take the museum to the world. 

Twitter is one of the best ways we can share our stories with the world, and hopefully take the world along with us on our remarkable journey!

2- Why did your museum registered to the MW?

We’ve very little money. We’ve few staff, and only a few supporters so far. But we’ve found that as soon as someone hears our story, they’re hooked. We hope that #MuseumWeek will amplify our voices from west Africa and get our story heard around the world.
