The Museum of Industrial and Technological Heritage is part of the “Museums for 10” event
According to ICOM (International Council of Museums), museums have the power to transform the world around us, because they are fantastic places of new discoveries that teach us about the past and inspire new ideas.
The European Night of Museums is a cultural event that involves cooperation between museums and other institutions. At that time, all cultural institutions are open to visitors until late at night, with the idea of bringing the museums and their exhibits closer to them and making them more accessible.
Along with the International Museum Day, which is celebrated on May 18, the Night of Museums is held as part of the National Museum Week.
The “Museums for 10” event is a national museum initiative, the largest on the territory of Serbia so far and unique in the European cultural space, coordinated by the National Committee of ICOM Serbia. The event was designed with the idea of closer cooperation and joint performance by museums in Serbia, with the aim of a stronger connection with the local community, which also results in more intense interaction with the audience and greater attendance.
This year’s event theme is “Museums, sustainability, and well-being”. As sustainability has become a global priority, due to the fight against global warming and climate change we are facing, the Museum Week will draw attention to these important issues.
The doors of the Museum of Industrial and Technological Heritage will be open for visitors from 7:30 to 18:30 as part of the “Museums for 10” event.
