Free admission at Glanmore in celebration of International Museum Day
BELLEVILLE – Residents of the Quinte region are invited to join Glanmore National Historic Site in celebrating International Museum Day.
Residents with a participating museum in their region can visit for free on Thursday, May 18.
Based on information on the International Council of Museums website, the awareness day was created in 1977 to showcase the importance of museums and their role in showcasing the development of society.
It also noted that more than 30,000 museums in over 120 countries across the world celebrate International Museum Day.
Here in Belleville, Glanmore will be participating in the international day of celebration and have said that they want to encourages the public to stop in and visit.
Education and marketing coordinator, Melissa Wakeling, said that taking advantage of Thursday’s free admission was the perfect chance to visit the city’s only museum that also is a national historic site.
“It’s always great to support local museums,” she said. “We’re all guilty of not playing tourist in our own community and we have a lot to celebrate in our local culture.”
She added that May is also Museum Month in the province of Ontario, and that the Glanmore would be working on some new exhibits for the public.
