Definition of Museum and Museology[kaynağı değiştir]

According to the definition of ICOM in 2007 “A museum is a non-profit, permanent institution in the service of society and its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study and enjoyment.” [1] Since 1946 ICOM has updated the “Definition of Museum” at different times. In the scope of such workshops conducted by the international committees of ICOM, the Workshop on Definition of Museums was held between 19-21 April 2018 in Nevşehir. [1] [2]

Museology is the field of science that focuses on museums.

  • International Museum Day is celebrated on the 18th of May every year.[3]

The theme for the Museum Day celebrations for 2022 has been determined as “Power of Museums” by ICOM. . To announce your museum day events and for more information, please click here
