Since 1977, May 18 has been marked as "International Museum Day". With the theme “Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion”, International Museum Day 2020 aims at becoming a rallying point to both celebrate the diversity of perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell.
From 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., the staff of the Alexander Spendirayan House-Museum will try to restore the connection between the visitors and the "residents" of the museums disconnected cause of COVID-19. The videos will be accompanied by the sign language, which will be presented by the first TV translator of the sign language of Armenia Zubeida Melikyan.
Guided by the proposed slogan, the museum aims to make this program available to people with hearing problems.
