From the world museum community, today we celebrate International Museum Day. The theme for the 2016 International Museum Day celebration is “Museums and Cultural Landscapes,” which is also the theme for the General Conference of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), to be held in Milan, Italy from July 3-9, 2016.

International Museum Day helps to raise awareness on how important museums are in the development of society. Over the years, ICOM has evolved in accordance with international museum professionals’ needs worldwide, keeping in mind its main mission. More than 60 years after its creation, the organization continues to represent the global museum community.

In celebration of International Museum Day, go out and visit your local museum. Learn more about this commemoration of archives, artifacts and docent-led tours by checking out ICOM International Museum Day!
