International Museum Day to be Held Online

International Museum Day is an international day held annually on or around 18 May, coordinated by the International Council of Museums.

The theme for International Museum Day 2020 is Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion. According to the official website of the International council of museums, the aim of the theme chosen for International Museum Day 2020 is to celebrate the diversity of viewpoints and overcoming the bias.

As ICOM Georgia stated, due to the pandemic, International Museum Day will be held online.

"Since the museums have restricted access to their audience due to lockdowns and isolation, many museums actively used social media and webpages to demonstrate their collections and exhibitions virtually.

From today onwards, during the next week, almost every museum of Georgia will hold interesting and significant events virtually.", is written in the information published by ICOM Georgia.
