International Museum Day is an annual event recognised on May 18th. It has been celebrated since its creation by ICOM in 1977. ICOM, the International Council of Museums, is an organization that promotes the conservation of “the world’s natural and cultural heritage.” In other words, they believe museums are vital to humanity! However, museums face some problems as they experience shortfalls in their funding goals. This day can also spread awareness about ways we can help save museums.

Each year, a different theme for International Museum Day seeks to draw attention to these magnificent places. In 2021, the title was “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine.” This theme explored ideas of innovation, equality, and environmental challenges. On International Museum Day, many museums host events related to that year’s particular theme.

How To Celebrate International Museum Day

The easiest way to acknowledge this day is to go to a museum, of course! But have you ever been to a museum at night? On International Museum Day, museums globally extend their hours so that visitors can visit after dark. In addition, many museums have special events and performances, such as live music and workshops. On May 18th, go to your favorite museum, take a picture, and share it with the world using #InternationalMuseumDay!
