International Museum Day is celebrated annually on May 18. This day was founded in 1977 under the initiative of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The primary objective is to highlight the significant role museums play in society.
International Museum Day, instituted by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) to foster cultural exchange and collaboration among nations, is celebrated annually with a different theme. This year, the theme is "Museums, Sustainability, and Well-Being."
An "Open Door" day has been designated as part of the International Museum Day celebration at the museums under the Ministry of Culture in order to effectively manage people's leisure time and foster an appreciation for Azerbaijan's rich cultural heritage through museum establishments.
Thus, on May 18, both citizens and visitors to our country will be able to enjoy free admission to museums.
