Every year since 1977, International Museum Day is organized on May 18. From America to Oceania and from Africa and Europe to Asia, this year’s event celebrates the theme, Museums and Cultural Landscapes. Institutions around the world open their doors and organize programs that explore how museums are responsible for their landscapes – both inside or outside their walls, and both physical and cultural – by contributing knowledge and taking an active role in their management and upkeep.
