International Museum Day

When: Tue., May 19, 12-4 p.m. 2015

Preceded by the confusingly similar National Art Museum Day — observed by the San Antonio Museum of Art with free admission on May 17 — International Museum Day unites upwards of 30,000 institutions across the globe on (or around) May 18. Launched by the International Council of Museums in 1977, IDM is designed to raise awareness about the role museums play in the development of society. The McNay picks up IMD’s 2015 theme of “Museums for a Sustainable Society” by inviting guests for a BYO Tuesday afternoon picnic on the grounds and a walking tour of the outdoor sculpture collection.
