Museums serve as depositories for our memories, history, cultural and scientific knowledge, and today they're being celebrated around the world. The International Museum Day website has this to say about this once a year event:
"Traditionally, International Museum Day is organised around 18 May. It can last for a day, a weekend or a whole week as long as the objective remains focused on the motto: “Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples”.“
What better way to join in on the celebration than to visit a museum today (or this week).
