International Museum Day is celebrated every year on May 18. This day is dedicated to raising awareness on the importance of museums.

This year’s theme is “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine.” International Museum Day 2021 will emphasize on rethinking the museum of the future.

As museums are considered as a heritage of humanity, International Museum Day draws its significance from the idea that it is the museums that are crucial means to ensure “cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace” among individuals all across the world.

In 1977, the inception of International Museum Day took place when the International Council of Museums (ICOM) started the observance.

International Council of Museums (ICOM) is the head organization of the museums which is dedicated to promote, and safeguard natural, cultural heritage- both tangible and intangible; current and future. It was established in 1946, it is a non-governmental organization located in Paris, France.

To fulfil the objective, there are 31 International Committees working under ICOM.
