IMD2020 in the wake of
COVID-19 pandemic

Following lockdowns, International Museum Day 2020 is going digital! We invite museums from all over the world to host online activities around that day and celebrate “Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion” with us.

What about onsite activities?

For those museums who wish to organise activities on site once the lockdowns are over, ICOM proposes an alternative date: a three-day celebration between November 14, coinciding with the Long Night of Museums, and ICOM’s 74th anniversary on November 16, 2020.

Between now and the end of November, ICOM will continue to support all museums who wish to participate in this global celebration of museums and their communities, whether they do it virtually or on site.
