Rajasthan celebrates International Museum Day with reopening of Kalibangan Museum to public
Rajasthan joined the world community in celebrating the International Museum Day (IMD) on May 18 with the theme, "Museums and contested histories: Saying the unspeakable in museum".

On the occasion of IMD, the renovated and redone Kalibangan museum in Hanumangarh district of Rajasthan was opened to public. The museum was closed in 2015 for repairs and renovation that included improvement in showcasing artefacts, flooring, false ceiling, lighting and public conveniences.

Each year, IMD is observed to highlight the essential role of museums as promoters of the free flow of ideas and knowledge, contributing towards a more informed society, stated UNESCO that hosted a round-table on the Reproduction of Art and Cultural Heritage (ReACH) project launched by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and a FacebookLive museum chat as part of UNESCO's global social media campaign Unite4Heritage.

According to UNESCO, museums are  one of most important partners for building peace in the minds of women and men. Today, museums specialise in everything from human ingenuity and cultural expressions to natural heritage.
