The United Nations is getting a museum on the Internet, in a headquarters to be built in Copenhagen, and in other locations around the world yet to be announced. The establishment of the “Museum for the United Nations – UN Live” was announced on Monday, the 71st birthday of the world body.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the announcement saying the museum will make the UN’s work accessible to a broader global public and build support for the new UN goals for 2030 “and our efforts to build a better shared future for all.”

The museum will be operated by an independent, non-profit organization incorporated under Danish law, with support from the United Nations. Its first public events are planned for 2017.
