The first GLAM cooperation partnered by Wikimedia Spain just began this month with the Valladolid Science Museum, one of the most important museums in the Spanish community of Castile and León, joining QRpedia!

The Museum has included QRpedia codes in the exhibitions related with some scientists like Louis Pasteur, Dmitri Mendeleev or Rosalind Franklin. They have called this feature "Stars of the science", and the museum sees QRpedia codes as an unique opportunity to approach the ~2600 foreign visitors per year they have.

This GLAM collaboration has also planned for the first months of 2013 a Wikipedia workshop and an Edit-a-thon.
