May 18th is a special date where museums around the world celebrate International Museum Day.
This year, the theme of the theme for the day will be: “Museum Collections Make Connections.” This theme is a reminder that museums are living institutions that help create bonds between visitors, generations and cultures around the world.
Museums in the Pacific Islands are also gearing up for this date, and have prepared exciting programs to share with their respective communities. Some will be organizing events leading up to the 18th, some will celebrate on the day, while others will continue the week after. The Pacific Island Museum Association will hopefully highlight some of these events.
Visit a museum in your community and enjoy the day!
