For the sixth year, AAMD is uniting its membership to celebrate Art Museum Day. Held in concert with ICOM’s International Museum Day, this year AAMD’s Art Museum Day will take place on and around Monday, May 18.
In 2014, approximately 180 member museums offered free admission, special programs and events in an international celebration of the importance of museums in our world.
Many AAMD members will offer free or reduced admission, educational programs, and/or discounts on or around May 18. AAMD also encourages museum visitors to use social media to share their Art Museum Day experiences with their museum and with their social networks.
