International Museum Day

'Museum collections make connections' is the motto for the 37th International Museum Day, which is taking place on 18 May 2014. The aim of the event is to draw attention to the wide variety of subjects covered by the 6,500-plus museums in Germany and by other museums around the world.

The purpose of any museum is to preserve objects of significance, usually from the past and on a specific theme, and to make them accessible to the general public in professionally curated exhibitions.
