International Museum Day will take place for the 47th time in 2024. The aim of the day of action is to draw attention to the thematic diversity of the more than 7,100 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 nationwide by the German Museums Association (Deutscher Museumsbund e.V.) and is organised in close cooperation with the museum associations and offices of the federal states at regional level and the local museums. Museum Day is supported by ICOM Germany. This year, the day of action is being organised under the patronage of the President of the Federal Council, Manuela Schwesig.
