International Museum Day 2024

International Museum Day 2024

Every year on May 18th, International Museum Day is celebrated around the world. Museums keep the world’s history intact. It stores artefacts, artworks, and cultural heritages that hold significant value for humanity. By visiting museums, we can learn about the past, understand different cultures, and appreciate the diversity of our world.

This special day has been observed since 1977. The International Council of Museums (ICOM) suggested celebrating this day to raise awareness about the importance of museums in our society.

In 2024, the theme of this day is “Museums for Education and Research”. This theme highlights the important role museums play in educating people about the history of the world. 

International Museum Day encourages people to visit museums. It’s a day for museum enthusiasts to celebrate their love for history, art, science, and culture. Many museums offer special events, guided tours, and exhibitions to celebrate this day.
