International Museum Day is May 18!
International Museum Day has been celebrated all over the world since 1977, and much like in years past, this year’s festivities are expected to entice both avid and novice museum-goers alike to turn out for the events.
The motto for International Museum Day continues to be: museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, co-operation and peace among peoples. In keeping with that motto, the theme decided on for this year’s celebrations is Museums for social harmony.
Many museums are offering special rates and experiences in conjunction with International Museum Day, so plan on visiting your favorite museum on May 18th, or better yet, check out some museums you haven’t been to yet! As art enthusiasts, the Park West Gallery bloggers are looking forward to taking full advantage of International Museum Day to see some great artwork!
