Museums Day and Night

18 May 2013

On 18 May the Museum will once again be celebrating International Museums Day with free entry to the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collections and a series of activities organised by the Education Department based on the ICOM’s slogan for this year’s event: Museums (memory and creativity) = social progress. Between 12 noon and 2pm a group of young and older people will give short explanatory talks on the works that make up the “Urban Views in the Collection” tour. Between 4pm and 6pm participants in the Museum’s educational programmes will introduce the public to details to be seen in a series of “Selected Works”. In addition, visitors can take part in the installation “Written for memory” by contributing their particular experiences of the Museum. For all those unable to visit in person, there will be the option to take part through the social networks, sending images via Facebook, Twitter and e-mail that will be used to create a photographic record of the Museum and its surroundings over time.
This year, International Museums Day coincides with Museums Night. The Museum will therefore be offering free entry to the Collections from 10.00 to 1.00.
