International Museum Day 2021: Theme

Each year there is a specific theme for International Museum Day. The theme for International Museum Day 2021 is "The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine."

Museums play an important part in the development of society. They enlighten us about the numerous unknowns and take us to places we have never been before.

A museum describes the journey of a nation from prehistory to modernity by displaying enriched historical artifacts such as tools, weapons, clothes, and jewelry. Hence, to mark the importance of the Museum, every year International Museum Day is observed.

Museums are the closest one can get to time travel. Every year the event highlights a specific theme that changes reflect the basis of the international museum community's preoccupations.
