For the first time, Tajikistan participated in the international action “Night of Museums” on May 18, 2013.
International Museum Day (IMD) is a celebration that held every year on or around May 18, coordinated by the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The event highlights a specific theme that changes every year and that is at the heart of the international museum community’s preoccupations.
International Museum Day provides the opportunity for museum professionals to meet the public and alert them as to the challenges that museums face. IMD serves as a platform to raise public awareness on the role museums play in the development of society today, on an international level.
With the theme “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine”, International Museum Day 2021 invites museums, their professionals and communities to create, imagine and share new practices of (co)-creation of value, new business models for cultural institutions and innovative solutions for the social, economic and environmental challenges of the present.
Each year, all museums in the world are invited to participate in IMD to promote the role of museums around in the world, creating unique, enjoyable and free activities around a theme discussed within the ICOM community for this special day. Since its creation in 1977, International Museum Day has gained increasing attention.
