Launch Of Family Friendly Museum Award 2016

What’s the most family friendly museum in Britain? The 2016 Family Friendly Museum Award is launched, giving visitors the chance to say which museum, gallery, heritage site, science centre or historic home gives the warmest welcome to families.

The Award – the biggest museum award in the country – and the only one where families pick the winner – is run by charity Kids in Museums. Kids in Museums works with museums nationwide to help them welcome families and children.

Nominations can be made by anyone – children, parents, grandparents, uncles, cousins, neighbours. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a giant National museum or a tiny two-room local gallery. It can be volunteer-run or boast a team of curators.

It can be best known for its outstanding collection of French 19th century porcelain or be alive with high-tech interactives (or even better – both!) What matters most is that the museum goes that extra mile to provide an excellent family friendly experience.
