INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY
International Museum Day (IMD) is an international day held annually on or around 18 May, coordinated by the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The event highlights a specific theme that changes every year reflecting a relevant theme or issue facing museums internationally.
