International Museum Day

According to the International Council of Museums, “The objective of International Museum Day (IMD) is to raise awareness about the fact that museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.” The events and activities planned to celebrate International Museum Day on May 18 can last a day, a weekend or an entire week. IMD was celebrated for the first time 40 years ago, and today, all around the world, more and more museums participate in International Museum Day.
