5•18 International Museum Day 2022
The theme of this year's 5•18 International Museum Day was the "Power of the Museums." the meaning of which is "Museums have the power to change the world around us. It is a power which can keep on sustainable developing. A power can keep on innovating and digitizing. A power can keep on going through the education of the community building."
Because of the COVID-19, 5•18 Museum Day Online Activities was held in Henan province this year. It was sponsored by Culture and Tourism Department of Henan Province and undertaken by Pingdingshan Museum.
