Thanks to a partnership between ICOM and Semantika, a streamlined and user-friendly platform is now available for museums to register and promote their activities and celebrations of International Museum Day on an interactive map.
Museums, promote your International Museum Day activities on a world map. Visitors, find the activities around the corner for International Museum Day. Together, celebrate International Museum Day around the theme “Museums for a sustainable society” on and around 18 May, 2015.
Throughout the preparation of International Museum Day and during the celebration, a selection of activities will be shared daily on International Museum Day’s Facebook page and on ICOM’s Twitter feed.

In 2014, International Museum Day obtained record-breaking participation with more than 35,000 museums hosting events in some 145 countries.
