May 18th is the annual International Museums Day which has been around since 1977. International Council of Museums (ICOM) organized this special day to recognize the important role that museums play in our society. This year’s theme is Museum and Memory which highlights the museums’ ability to store individuation and collective memory to tell stories about cultural heritage through the collections of objects.
Philadelphia Museum of Art is not the only one participating, there are countless museums around the globe including Europe and Asia that are also celebrating International Musuems Day.
