International Museum Day 2017

Smart is the new cool. Just take the growing number of museums worldwide participating at the International Museum Day.

In Switzerland alone, more than 180 museums are participating. They offer special exhibitions, tours, workshops and lots more to do. Each year, there is a special theme. This year, the event will be covering the topic of Museums and contested histories: Saying the unspeakable in museums. Questions such as “Is it OK to display ivory in a museum?” will be highlighted and discussed.

Give some nearby museums a chance to surprise you on International Museum Day!

For instance: Throw a dice at the Kulturama Museum of Mankind in Zürich in order to get a surprise guided tour through the museum and experience the evolution of a man with all of your senses!
