About the Day and Night of Museums

The International Museum Day has been celebrated since 1977 under the sponsorship of the International Museum Council (ICOM), with the aim of affirming museums and highlighting their role in promoting cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue. The museum night is a manifestation, organized under the sponsorship of the Council of Europe and ICOM since 2005 at the initiative of the French Museum Directorate, on the first Saturday closest to the 18th of May, when the International Day of the Museum is celebrated.
