International Museum Day in Medellín: The future of tradition


International Museum Day in Medellín: The future of tradition

For more than 40 years, an international awareness about the importance of museums in the enrichment of cultures has been created, this year Medellín also wants to celebrate International Museum Day with very special agendas for all those interested in culture and history from the city.


The International Museum Day 2019 will focus on the new roles of museums as active actors in their communities “Museums as cultural hubs: The future of tradition” and that as museums are developed, their collections Stories become legacies of the new generations.

The Mesa de Museos de Medellín is made up of 27 organizations that seek to celebrate this international day with all the citizens and tourists who are in Medellín proposing extended hours, free entrance to exhibitions and cultural activations in the public space.
