International Museum Day 2012

Every year since 1977, International Museum Day is held worldwide sometime around 18 May. This year, the museum community will celebrate the 35th anniversary of this event: more than 30,000 museums in around 100 countries will hold special activities on this occasion.

The theme of the 2012 International Museum Day, “Museums in a Changing World. New challenges, New inspirations”, invites museums and their visitors to wonder about the role of museums in our society, in an era of numerous changes: IMD2012 is as much about museums growing and shaping their future, as it is about displaying and interpreting new issues like climate change, new media or social responsability.

Discover, explore, experience! On the International Museum Day which is celebrated on May 20th in this country, Swiss museums propose insights into their fascinating collections to children, young people and adults.

Over 130 museums all over Switzerland open their doors for you and will offer a wide range of activities - mostly free. Click here to find a museum near you.

As the weather forecast is rainy - this is a good opportunity to see and do something new. Check out the Museo Cantonale di Storia naturale in Lugano who have a special progamme with children's actvivites planned for today between 10:30 and 17:00.
