BILLINGS – People all over the world enjoyed free admission as part of International Museum Day on Saturday.

In Billings the Yellowstone Art Museum provided a chance to see the current exhibits.

The International Council of Museums started the free day in 1977.

The Yellowstone Art Museum has been a part of the event for about 10 years.

The idea is to bring awareness of museums.

The theme this year is “Museums as Cultural Hubs: the future of tradition.”

This is also the theme of the council’s conference in September.

About 40,000 museums worldwide hosted events as part of International Museum Day in 2018.
