International Museum Day


ICOM Barbados was pleased to partner with the @barbadosmuseum for International Museum Day activities!

On Thursday, May 18th, we gathered at the Barbados Museum for a Community Wellness Day to celebrate #InternationalMuseumDay (IMD).

Our IMD festivities aligned with this year’s theme, Museums, Sustainability and Well-being, and featured a variety of health screenings, fitness events, and other activities in our serene outdoor setting that promoted wholesome recreation and wellness.







Happy International Museum Day from ICOM Barbados! To reimagine the future, we begin by revisiting our past. Founding President of ICOM Barbados Alissandra Cummins shares with us the circumstances that led to ICOM Barbados being formed, and the vision it facilitated for a network of museums in the Caribbean.

The ICOM Barbados Committee wishes everyone a Happy International Museum Day!
In this video, some of the ICOM Barbados community reflect on what the International Council of Museums – ICOM #IMD2020 theme of #Museums4Equality means to them and the work they do within museums, particularly in this time of COVID-19. This also includes a special contribution from Caribbean poet Yvonne Weekes!
What does the theme “Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion” mean to you?
