International Museum Day

International Museum Day


 

Each year since 1977, ICOM has organised International Museum Day, which represents a unique moment for the international museum community.

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." Organised on 18 May each year or around this date, the events and activities planned to celebrate International Museum Day can last a day, a weekend or an entire week. IMD was celebrated for the first time 40 years ago. 

 

International Museum Day 2020:

"Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion"

Empowering diversity and inclusion within our cultural institutions.

With the theme "Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion", International Museum Day 2020 aims at becoming a rallying point to both celebrate the diversity of perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell.
