May 18th, is International Museum Day, an annual occasion first designated by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) in 1977 to honour the important role that museums play in societal development. As ICOM notes, “The museum is an institution that preserves and communicates the past, yet it is grounded in the present. In its very essence, it is a link between the generations, as it allows present and future generations to better comprehend their origins and history.”
