May 18th International Museum Day

The largest museum in the world is the Louvre in Paris. Built in 1792 it is 782,910 square feet and the home to the Mona Lisa. Most of us think of museums as places to visit fine art but frankly, there are more that don’t contain any art than those that do. There are museums for practically every interest including, trains, toys, war, furniture, fashion, buttons, aprons… well, the list goes on and on. Today was created back in 1977 by the International Council of Museums. I wonder if they included the lint museum in their collection?

How to celebrate – Visit a museum. Create your own museum. Make a list of museums where you live.
