International Museum Day
International Museum Day is celebrated annually on 18 May. With the theme of “Museums for
Equality: Diversity and Inclusion” for 2020, International Museum Day celebrates the diversity of
perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champions tools for
identifying and overcoming bias in what museums display and in the stories that they tell.
To celebrate International Museum Day 2020, the Museum Roundtable embarked on a digital
initiative to share how our members have played their parts in creating inclusive spaces, storylines,
and initiatives for people of different needs, backgrounds, and origins.
