International Museum Day is a worldwide event celebrated every 18th of May that aims to raise awareness on the importance of museums as vehicles of cultural exchange and enrichment. For this year’s celebration, here’s a question for the community to ponder on: What do museums mean to you? Is it a place of wonder and learning? Or a quiet entertainer with its endless curios? Show your answer through a photograph and stand a chance of taking home 10 piggies for the Lomography online shop. Submit your photos here.
