21 May 2023 is International Museum Day!
Category : Current
International Museum Day will take place for the 46th time in 2023. The aim of the day of action is to draw attention to the thematic diversity of the more than 6,500 museums in Germany and museums worldwide. The guiding principle of Museum Day is therefore Discover museums. With their broad spectrum, diverse offerings and innovative ideas, the museums make a great contribution to our cultural and social life. As a visitor, you are cordially invited to discover the treasures preserved in the museums and to be inspired by the passionate commitment of the museum staff.
The day of action is proclaimed annually by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and highlights a different theme from museum work.
In Germany, International Museum Day is coordinated by the Deutscher Museumsbund e. V. and implemented in close cooperation with the museum associations and offices of the Länder, ICOM Germany and the local museums. The action day is decisively supported by the foundations and institutions of the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe.
The patronage for Museum Day is assumed by the President of the Federal Council.
