  • About the International Museum Day

    The International Museum Day on May 18 is organized every year by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and promotes events and activities around the world. ‘The objective of International Museum Day (IMD) is to raise awareness of 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 event exists already since 1977. In 2018, thousands of museum in 158 countries and territories participated.

    The International Museum Day 2019 focuses on the new roles of museums as active actors and cultural hubs in their communities.

    The role of museums in society is changing. Once static institutions, museums are reinventing themselves to become more interactive, audience focused, community oriented, flexible, adaptable and mobile. They have become cultural hubs functioning as platforms where creativity combines with knowledge and where visitors can also co-create, share and interact. For this reason, the theme chosen for International Museum Day 2019 is “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition”.
