International Museum Day

IMD wp2015

The Museum of Belize and Houses of Culture, and the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), join the worldwide community of museums in celebrating International Museum Day on and around 18 May, 2015. The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to increase public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society.

The theme Museums for a sustainable society, recognizes the role of museums in raising public awareness about the need for a society that is less wasteful, more cooperative and that uses resources in a way that respects living systems.

The Museum of Belize, along with the Houses of Culture, will commemorate this day with a number of educational activities, which targets students and the general public.    Join us at the Museum of Belize or the Houses of Culture in your area for an exciting glimpse into the world of museums.
