International Council of Museums (ICOM) has been celebrating International Museum Day on May 18 every year since 1977.
The objective of International Museum Day 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.”
International Museum Day 2022 Theme: “The Power of Museums”
Museums have the power to transform the world around us. As incomparable places of discovery, they teach us about our past and open our minds to new ideas — two essential steps in building a better future.
