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!
