Today is International Museum Day
Every year on May 18, museum workers around the world celebrate their professional holiday - the International Museum Day. It appeared on the calendar in 1977, when the regular session of the ICOM (International Council of Museums) accepted the proposal of the Russian organization to establish this cultural holiday.
Since 1978, the International Museum Day has been celebrated in more than 150 countries.
It is generally believed that through museums, society expresses its attitude to the historical and cultural heritage, and it is difficult to disagree with this.
Every year since 1992, the holiday has had its specific direction, dedicated to issues of museum activity, such as illegal export of museum values, the role of museums in raising the culture of society and others.
The theme of the Museum Day in 2017 was "Museums and controversial history: talking about complexities in museums", and in 2018 - "Museums in the era of hyper communications: new approaches, new audiences".
Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, the enrichment of cultures and the development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace between people.
