Dear colleagues!

Today is International Museum Day, which unites all those who love art, culture, and history.

This day was established in 1977 by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) to raise public awareness about the role of museums in the development of culture, science, and education.

This year's theme for International Museum Day is Museums, Sustainable Development and Well-being. It is relevant in light of the global challenges facing humanity, such as climate change, social inequalities, poverty, and conflict. Museums are not only repositories of memory but also places of inspiration, education, and dialogue.

On this special day we want to thank those for whom going to a museum is not an event, but an everyday effort to preserve the cultural heritage, and create amazing expositions and informative tours.

Thanks to the diligent daily work of museum staff, we have the opportunity to fully experience the course of history, understand the past, enjoy the present, and dream about the future. You make an important contribution to the development of education and spirituality of the community!

The Secretariat of IICAS wishes you success, health, and new achievements in your noble mission!
