Celebrate #MuseumWeek May 11-17

News & Announcements,

Celebrate Museum Week May 11-17!

This year's international celebration of museums on social media takes on greater meaning as museums struggle with being closed during the pandemic, and the many implications that can bring to organizations. We encourage your institution to take part in this year's #MuseumWeek efforts happening May 11-17 on social as a way of promotion and worldwide celebration of the tremendous impact that museums make on our daily lives.

VAM will be participating along with museums worldwide, including launching our "VAM Is With You On Your Journey" tshirt campaign that we hope our friends will enjoy in showing their support of VAM and our amazing #vamuseums community.
