In 1977, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) established May 18th as the International Museum Day with the aim of recognizing the role of these cultural institutions in the development of society. This day aims to contribute to promoting the idea that museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enriching cultures, and fostering mutual understanding, cooperation, and peace among peoples.

Every year on May 18th, history, science, and art are celebrated worldwide through special programs.
