International Museum Day 2019

Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (IAMM) is pleased to invite you to the celebration of International Museum Day that will be held in IAMM on 18 June 2019 (Tuesday) from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm.

The theme for this year is ‘Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition’ which clearly indicate that the museums have become cultural hubs functioning as platforms where creativity combines with knowledge and where visitors can also co-create, share and interact.

As museums increasingly grow into our roles as cultural hubs, we are also finding new ways to honour our collections, histories and legacies, creating traditions that will have new meaning for future generations and relevance for an increasingly diverse contemporary audience at a global level.

As per the ICOM Code of Ethics for Museums, museums are responsible for preserving and promoting this heritage. Visiting museums on International Museum Day is a sure way to participate in celebrating thousand years of heritage and culture. The objective of International Museum Day is to raise awareness of the fact that, “Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate this special day together with us!
