“A visit to museum is a search for beauty, truth and meaning in our lives. Go to museums as often as you can.” – Maira Kalman

International Museum Day 2018

 

On 18 May, the world celebrates International Museum Day to raise awareness of the importance of museums in the development of society. On 16 May 2018, in celebration of International Museum Day, the Cape Town Museum of Childhood partnered with Iziko Museums by taking their mobile museum to Athlone Christian Academy in Silvertown, Athlone. The mobile museum is part of Iziko Museum’s educational outreach project which serves rural and urban communities that are unable to visit their museums. About thirty learners from grade five to grade 10 enjoyed an interactive session facilitated by Sithembele Harmans, community outreach specialist at Iziko Museums.
