May 18th International Museum Day
Museums remind of us of where we have been, and possibly show us where we are going as well. Things we just can’t live without today had to come from somewhere and generally those proto-types can be found in museums all over the world. Of course, museums also teach us about animals and nature as well. This day was created in 1977 by the International Council of Museums.
How to celebrate – Visit a museum. Look for all the antiques in your house. Donate historical items you no longer want to a museum so that others can enjoy them.
