"The worldwide community of museums celebrates International Museum Day on and around 18 May 2018. 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.'" International Council of Museums, https://www.facebook.com/internationalmuseumday/

We believe, at the North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) Association®, that we have taken this theme to an even higher level by connecting our institutions memberships and expanding the opportunities for cultural exchange and enrichment beyond the single organization. And, as we pass the 1,000 member institutions mark, we celebrate our connectivity, cooperation and continued growth!

Thank you for being a part of our amazing hyperconnected association and have a wonderful summer!
