International Museum Day 2013

Established by the International Council of Museums (ICOM)in 1977, the International Museum Day has the purpose of raising public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society.

 Celebrated every year in the 18th of May, the 2013 theme is “Museums (Memory + Creativity) = Social Change”. Putting together their traditional mission of displaying and conserving of hour historical heritage, with the necessary creativity to attract new and more public through their programmes, museums want to play a constructive role in society.

 During the International Museum Day 2013, near 32000 museums in 129 countries, celebrate this day with special programmes, including workshops,  and extendend opening hours - often until midnight.

 Don't stay home today, go to a museum near you.
