(TRAVPR.COM) ASIAROOMS.COM - ENJOY MONTH OF LEARNING IN MACAU TO MARK INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY

Museums across Macau will be providing free entry to guests throughout May to mark International Museum Day.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - May 2nd, 2012 - Macau's museums will be throwing their doors open for free this May as they prepare a series of special events and promotions to mark International Museum Day.

Taking place on May 18th annually, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) event debuted in 1977 and is designed to raise awareness of the cultural importance of these establishments.

To commemorate the occasion this year, admission to all of the museums in Macau will be free on different days of the month.

For example, locations that will be open for free on the day itself include the Maritime Museum, Lin Zexu Memorial Museum of Macau and the Macau Museum of Art, while other institutions - such as the Natural and Agrarian Museum and the Museum of Sacred Art and Crypt - are free throughout the year.

In addition, each participating museum will offer a series of seminars, thematic exhibitions and workshops that will demonstrate their depth of cultural information.

ICOM is also sponsoring a special photo contest called Me in my Museum, inviting guests to photograph themselves in their favourite museums to mark the 35th anniversary of International Museum Day.

Culture vultures can choose from a huge range of Macau hotels at AsiaRooms.com, such as the Sofitel Macau.
