About

The theme of the 2024 International Museum Day celebration is "Museums for Education and Research".


Museums, as dynamic agents of culture and education, have the potential to nurture and develop curiosity, creativity and critical thinking, providing the public with a comprehensive experience of knowledge and entertainment. Spaces open to all citizens, promote research and the dissemination of new innovative ideas.

By choosing this theme for 2024, ICOM wishes to highlight museums as vital places of convergence of education and research, spanning a broad spectrum from art and history to science and technology, where innovation meets With tradition. Consequently, they have the potential to contribute significantly to our understanding of the world.

This year's celebration of International Museum Day promotes awareness of a sustainable, empathetic and inclusive world.

It will focus on the following topics, included in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 4: Quality education, with equal access, inclusiveness and lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Goal 9: Sustainable development, resilient infrastructure and encouraging innovation.
Since its establishment in 1964, the IFFI has aimed to promote the natural sciences and at the same time educate people so that with knowledge they can return to respecting nature as the only source of life.

The Museum today functions as a model Center for Scientific Research and Education for the Environment and the response to the biggest problem of our planet, Climate Change.

It records and studies the natural wealth of the country, proposes and undertakes the implementation of measures to protect and manage endangered ecosystems in cooperation with national and local bodies, submits national data on biodiversity to the European Commission and supports the proposals of international organizations and European environmental policy with new advanced scientific and educational activities.

At the same time, it develops a new form of education and information focused on people and especially the new generation, with the aim of realizing the impact of our daily actions on the environment and acting consciously, individually and responsibly for the protection and preservation of nature which is necessary for the health, well-being, our very existence.
