Event time: 
Saturday, May 18, 2019 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Description: 

The Center is celebrating International Museum Day and Art Museum Day with introductory tours (11 am and 2 pm) and a 10 percent discount on entire purchases at the Museum Shop. The tours of the Center will also feature the Founder’s Room, which is open to the public on special occasions. This room commemorates the life, interests, and generosity of the museum’s benefactor, Paul Mellon (1907–1999; Yale College, Class of 1929).

International Museum Day, organized by the International Council of Museums (ICOM), and Art Museum Day, sponsored by the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), are annual events that recognize museums as important global and civic anchors that offer inspiring and educational experiences in ways that make towns, cities, and regions better places for everyone who lives and works there.
