This year, International Museum Day 2024 is celebrating the theme ‘Museums for Education and Research’ and museums everywhere are invited to showcase their importance as dynamic educational institutions of discovery, learning, and cultural understanding.

Museums play a key role in rethinking education and envisioning a future where innovation meets tradition, and knowledge sharing transcends barriers.

For this reason, this year’s event focuses on a series of Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals that specifically promote the unlocking of knowledge. Here are this year’s key objectives:

  • Goal 4: Quality education – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Through the centre’s educational, professional, social programmes, the Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum aims to serve as a valuable instrument for the educational community by sharing its potential as a partner in the promotion and support of learning and research.

  • Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure – Build resilient infrastructures, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation.

The Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum has been working for several years on programmes designed to raise awareness and educate people in responsible, sustainable, equitable and innovative fashion culture.
