Siman di Museo - National Museumweek

Each year since 1977, ICOM (The International Council of Museums) has organised International Museum Day on May 18th. This day marks a unique moment for the international museum community. Over the years more and more museums all around the world started to participate. Curacao being one of the joining countries.

International Museum Day 2019 will focus on the new roles of museums as active actors in their communities. This year's theme is “Museums as Cultural Hubs: The future of tradition”.
