International Museum Day 2023

Each year for International Museum Day, on 18 May, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) chooses a theme that society is passionate and devoted to raising awareness about and changes we can make in the world. The chosen theme for this year is ‘Museums sustainability and well-being’.
