International Museum Day. Raising awareness.
Possibly, go and visit a museum tonight!
Enjoy the beauty of our wonderful country.
Established in 1977 by the International Council of Museums, International Museum Day is designed to raise awareness throughout the world of the critical importance of museums in the development of a society. This year, the theme is Museums and Cultural Landscapes. Last year, over 35,000 museums in over 145 countries participated. Here in New York, city with the third largest number of museums in the world, any day is a good day to visit a museum. But on this day, check with your favorite institution and see what special programs they may have to participate in this moment of cultural appreciation. Enjoy!
