International Museum Day 2017 is being celebrated on thursday by the worldwide community of museums. Did you know? One of the most prized possessions of the museum is a 160 million-year-old fossil bone of a dinosaur called a Sauropod.Sulabh International museum of toilets (yes, you heard that right!) traces the history of the toilet for the past 4,500 years.

"By focusing on the role of museums as hubs for promoting peaceful relationships between people, this theme highlights how the acceptance of a contested history is the first step in envisioning a shared future under the banner of reconciliation", the ICOM said.

Peng Liyuan, wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, on Monday invited the partners of leaders attending the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation to tour the Palace Museum in Beijing, which is a solid example of cultural exchange.

Business Development Manager Erin Samuell says they're also hosting the grand opening of three new exhibits at the museum.

Shanghai Science and Technology Museum, the Natural History Museum, Shanghai Cinema Museum and the privately owned Shanghai Guanfu Museum are offering half-price entry tomorrow.

The goal of this year's International Museum Day is to explore ways of understanding "the incomprehensible aspects of the contested histories inherent to the human race".

In 2016, 35,000 museums participated across 145 countries, and it is hoped that IMD 2017 will be even more successful, with more than 1,000 activities registered on ICOM's interactive map.

NGZ education officer Akim Nyakudya said the day provided an opportunity to raise awareness on the importance of museums in the sustainable development of society. Organised on and around 18 May each year, the events and activities planned to celebrate International Museum Day can last a day, a weekend or a whole week.
