International Museum Day 2024

International Museum Day 2024

Every year on May 18th, International Museum Day is celebrated around the world. Museums are special places that keep our world’s history safe. They have important things like ancient objects, beautiful artworks, and items from different cultures. By visiting museums, we can learn about the past. We can see the amazing diversity of our world.

International Museum Day has been celebrated since 1977. The International Council of Museums (ICOM) started this day to remind everyone how important museums are for our society.

In 2024, the theme for International Museum Day is “Museums for Education and Research.” This theme shows how museums help teach people about the history of the world.

On International Museum Day, people are encouraged to visit museums. It’s a great day for those who love history, art, science, and culture to enjoy and learn. Many museums have special events, guided tours, and unique exhibitions to celebrate this day.
