WASHINGTON: International Museum Day is being observed on Saturday around the globe to raise awareness about the vital role museums play in society.

This year’s theme, “Museums for Education and Research,” underscores the profound impact museums have in these crucial areas. International Museum Day aims to bring together museums from around the world, emphasizing their importance in fostering awareness, promoting understanding, and celebrating the appreciation of diverse cultures.

Museums are not just repositories of artifacts; they are dynamic institutions that contribute to lifelong learning and scientific research, offering valuable insights into our past, present, and future.

To highlight the significance of museums, various government and private institutions have organized a range of programs and activities. These events include educational workshops, interactive exhibits, special tours, and community engagement initiatives.

Through these efforts, institutions strive to engage the public, showcase their collections, and demonstrate how museums serve as important centers for education, cultural exchange, and scholarly research.
