This day was established in 1977 by the International Council of Museums. International Museum Day is a good opportunity to visit, appreciate, and support your local museum.

The goals of International Museum Day are to give museum professionals the opportunity to meet the public, and to make the public aware of challenges faced by museums. Each year, a different theme is promoted.
