FAMILY FRIENDLY MUSEUM AWARD 2016 LAUNCHED

Which is Britain’s most family friendly museum? The 2016 Family Friendly Museum Award is launched – giving you the chance to say which museum, gallery, heritage site, science centre or historic home in Britain gives the warmest welcome to families. The Award is the biggest museum award in Britain – and the only one where families pick the winner.

Nominations can be made by anyone – visitors, volunteers and museums themselves. You can nominate 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 both!). What matters most is that it provides an excellent family friendly experience.

If you’re a family making a nomination, anyone can do so – children, parents, grandparents, cousins, uncles, neighbours. You just have to tell us why your favourite museum should win. Give us as much detail as you can. Why was the museum so special for your family? What was the welcome like? What did you do there that really stood out? Tell us lots – we love to hear all your museum stories. Take a look at the Kids in Museums Manifesto. How does the museum match up to the 20 points on how to make a museum family friendly?

If you’re a museum making a nomination, anyone in the museum can do so – curators, volunteers, front of house, education officers, marketing, youth panels. You just have to argue passionately that your museum should win, telling us why. Use the Kids in Museums Manifesto as a guideline. The more you tell us, the better chance your museum will make it to the shortlist. We love to hear lots of details. Be sure to include as many visitor comments and support for your nomination as possible. The Award is a great chance to ask your visitors what they think of your family offer and to measure your museum against the 20 points on the Kids in Museums Manifesto. Use it as an opportunity to do a family friendly audit of your museum.

Send nominations to:

Email: [email protected] and tell us why you think your museum should win. If you are sending large documents, please send as hard copy to address below, not as attachments.

What happens next?

A group of volunteers sift through all the hundreds of nominations and whittle them down to a shortlist. The shortlist will be announced on 19 July.

Over the summer, the shortlisted museums are road-tested anonymously by families, using the Kids in Museums Manifesto as a guide to their family friendliness.

Families – Would your family like to be mystery museum judges and help pick the winner? Then email [email protected].
