Superstition Mountain Museum Offers Free Admission on International Museum Day, Friday, May 18
This year, as in the past, the Superstition Mountain Museum will be joining museums in 154 other countries, as well as a number of museums in Arizona, in celebrating Friday, May 18, as International Museum Day, by offering free admission from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. this Friday.
International Museum Day is a celebration that is held worldwide each year. May 18, with the expressed aim of increasing public awareness about the role museums play in the development of society. The theme chosen for 2018 is “Hyperconnected Museums: New Approaches, New Publics.” “Hyperconnectivity” is a term invented in 2001 to design the multiple means of communication used today, such as face-to-face contact, email, instant messaging, telephone or the Internet. This global network of connections becomes each day more complex, diverse and integrated. In the hyperconnected world of today, museums join in the trend.
The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to increase public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society, and it has been steadily gaining momentum ever since.
There will be a Stamp Mill demo at 11:00.
