International Museum Day 2021 “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine”

Despite all difficulties and restrictions, Greek museums will celebrate the International Museum Day 2021 by offering free admission and hosting events not limited to May 18 but covering the rest of the week.

The health crisis has affected every aspect of our lives; working conditions, social relationships, travel, and our everyday lives in general. The culture sector has been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, in every aspect. However, the current situation requires us to reflect and redefine our priorities.

Museums, as institutions aspiring to be living parts of society, must not only follow but pave the way towards a better dissemination of information and easier access to both their physical space and their digitized collections. Relevant initiatives and actions that have already been launched need to grow and become widespread.

The theme of this year’s International Museum Day “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine” demonstrates this very need for Museums to become key vehicles and pillars for a cultural ‘restart’ following the pandemic.

Museums are celebrating and waiting for us!
