Entry into all Museums around Greece will be free of charge on Friday, May 18, in commemoration of International Museum Day, the Culture Ministry announced.

The day was first established by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) in 1977 in order to highlight the role of Museums in modern society. The message for this year revolves around the theme of “museums as an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, co-operation and peace among peoples”.

The Greek section of ICOM has decided that the “honoured” museum for 2007 will be the National Glyptotheque of the National Gallery, Alexandros Soutsos Museum, whose permanent collection, located within an east Athens park, was inaugurated on June 27, 2006.
