The International Council of Museums encourages museums everywhere on the planet to join in the recognition that "Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples." Surely, such a lofty goal calls for wearing a special t-shirt when visiting a museum this month.

Salute the Museum Buildings Themselves with an Architects T-Shirt

I'll never forget visiting the museum in Naples, Italy...I was alone, so I could take my time and immerse myself completely in what I was seeing. It was an incredible day that took me on a journey through time.

Tees For Your Head has geeky t-shirts to cover all sartorial requirements for International Museum Day.

Tees For Your Head designers Tom Bates and Karin Carter celebrate International Museum Day because they have nothing but fond memories of many museum visits. Tired feet are forgotten, but the thrill of learning new things and seeing new sights are retained.

Carter says, "I'll never forget visiting the museum in Naples, Italy, where artifacts from Pompeii are displayed. I was alone, so I could take my time and immerse myself completely in what I was seeing. It was an incredible day that took me on a journey through time. The insight into the sophistication of cultural life in Italy was magical, and it was poignant that that rich life stopped catastrophically when Mount Vesuvius buried Pompeii in lava."

Bates says he was moved by the ancient cast bronze bell collection in the Shanghai Museum of Art. "Having done a tiny bit of my own bronze casting, I was very impressed with the scale, complexity, and beauty of these bells. Some were so elaborate they almost seemed like strange architectural models of enigmatic buildings. I spent hours photographing them and contemplating their impact. I would return to Shanghai just to see this museum again."

To start with, museum buildings themselves are important, so how about an architecture t-shirt that says right up front that we should pay attention to the people who create these inspirational spaces? From controversial buildings such as the Experience Music Project by Frank Gehry (controversial when built, and now accepted) to classics like the Louvre in Paris and the Uffizi in Florence, the architecture is just the beginning of what can be a moving experience.

For a planetarium or space museum, the perfect nerdy t-shirt is one of the official South Pole Telescope tees. Tees For Your Head is the only place these designs are available to the general public, or to team members who want to replace a worn tee or get one in a kid's size. The designs can be purchased in sizes from toddler to 6XL. Designs change every year; for example, the South Pole Telescope 2010 design features a red and blue palette and close-packed detailing in a drawing of the telescope.

To be beautifully nerdy in a museum like the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose, a geeky t-shirt is de rigueur. Kids particularly like the Got Frontal Lobes tee shirt featuring a spritely praying mantis, as well as the t-shirt-wearing T Rex. Both are appropriate, given the importance of entomology and many children's' fascination with anything dinosaur related. In the Discovery Museum, kids (and even chronologically-non-kids) will be running around and playing, so a t-shirt is the perfect choice. Parents might want to announce their geeky inclinations with the Talk Nerdy to Me tee.

Enjoy the thrill of a good museum visit on International Museum Day, while wearing a t-shirt that declares nerdiness to all.

Help spread the word about this fun international day that recognizes the value of museums.
