The worldwide community of museums will celebrate International Museum Day around 18 May, 2013.
This year, the theme of the International Museum Day will be
Museums (memory + creativity) = social change.
The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to increase public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society. Momentum has been rising unabated ever since. In 2012, International Museum Day garnered record‐breaking participation with almost 32,000 museums hosting events in more than 129 countries.
