#IMD2022 Museums: Register Your Event on the Official International Museum Day Map

Is your museum organising a special event for International Museum Day? Register it on our interactive map to join thousands of museums worldwide in unleashing the power of museums!

As every year, we make your events visible to thousands of people through the official International Museum Day map. In this way, we show the global scale of the event and at the same time let visitors know what activities they can attend locally. On International Museum Day 2021, more than 4,500 online and offline events were registered on the map!

New this year

This year, three tags allow you to register an event under one of the sub-themes to explore the potential of museums to bring positive change to their communities:

  • The power of innovation in digitisation and accessibility
  • The power of sustainability
  • The power of community building through education

Check out the new interactive map on WeMap. To participate, simply fill in the form on OpenAgenda. If you are a new user, you can create an account. If you have already participated in a previous edition, just login to find all your information.

International Museum Day

The International Council of Museums (ICOM) created International Museum Day in 1977 to raise awareness of the role of museums in the development of society, and it has been growing ever since. In 2021, the celebration has amplified its impact through the development of hybrid activities around the world, reaching 89 million people through social media, news articles, blog posts, podcasts and more!
