Admission is free all day for everyone in honor of International Museum Day.
Ravens Cafe D'art will be open from 4-8 p.m. during International Free Day with regular menu. A portion of proceeds benefits local summer camp programs.
The theme chosen for 2018 is "Hyperconnected museums: New approaches, new publics".
The objective of International Museum Day is to raise awareness of the fact that, “Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.” Organised on and around 18 May each year, the events and activities planned to celebrate International Museum Day can last a day, a weekend or a whole week.
Participation in International Museum Day is growing among museums all over the world. In 2017, more than 36,000 museums participated in the event in some 157 countries.
