Happy International Museum Day #IMD2021

Every year since 1977, ICOM has organized International Museum Day (IMD), which represents a unique moment for the international museum community. On this day, participating museums plan creative events and activities related to the International Museum Day theme, engage with their public and highlight the importance of the role of museums as institutions that serve society and its development.

The objective of International Museum Day is to raise awareness of the fact that, “Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.” Organized on and around 18 May each year, the events and activities planned to celebrate International Museum Day can last a day, a weekend or a whole week.
In Celebration of International Museum Day, May 18, 2021, ICOM-US is giving free access to the "What is a Museum? An Exploration in Six Parts" webinar series recordings.

The recordings will be granted for this week only, May 18-23, 2021.
Watch the recordings here!
All ICOM members will have lifetime access to the recordings following the International Museum Day special. If you are not a member, you will be able to purchase the series after the May 23rd here or receive free access included in your new ICOM-US Membership after submitting an application here
