The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to encourage public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society.
From America to Oceania, through Europe, Asia and Africa, International Museum Day (IMD) is a special moment for the global museum community. On this day, participating museums interpret an issue affecting cultural organisations. International Museum Day is also a fantastic opportunity for museum professionals to meet their public. Museums are at the heart of the system, institutions that serve and develop society.
Created in 1946, ICOM (International Council of Museums) is the only international organisation representing museums and museum professionals on a global level.
ICOM is an international non-governmental organisation maintaining formal relations with UNESCO. Within the United Nations, ICOM has a consultative status with the Economic and Social Council.
