International Museum Day

On this day we celebrate our main professional holiday – International Museum Day!

Today is the 40th anniversary since  all museum international community  set up this special date on May, 18.  International Council of Museums (ICOM): ‘Museums serve as dynamic educational centres, fostering curiosity, creativity and critical thinking. Museums are spaces where education and research come together to shape our understanding of the world.’

We completely agree with this interpretation of museum work and adhere to it, drawing on the rich experiences of our Russian and international colleagues. In our case, the museum is, above all, about people—our close-knit team. Our employees work tirelessly every day to improve the estate, organize events, lead guided tours, welcome guests, and create exhibitions. Each of them deserves the highest gratitude!

That’s why on Museum Day we would like to congratulate our landscape designer Yulia Samcheva, who was awarded with the Prize of the Government of the Tula Region 2024 in the nomination ‘For Professional Faitrhfulness’! Yulia, well done! Thank you! Way to go!
