International Museum Day - 18th May
15th – 16th May 2010

At the weekend 15th and 16th of May, our Museum, similarly to thousands of other Museums throughout the world, celebrates the International Museum Day. This day was established in 1977 by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) aiming to elevate their role in social development. Our Museum, inspired by this year’s theme, “Museums and Social Harmony”, organises a programme called “Painting for the World’s Cultures”. Children from the age of 5 up to the age of 13 years old travel virtually to the continents using a globe, dance an African dance, eat an American burger, feed the kangaroos and use pencils and paper to draw the joy, understanding, respect, peace and love among the cultures of the world.
