Children in Museums Award Shortlist 2019

We are excited to announce the shortlisted museums for our annual Children in Museums Award.


Our judges not only value creativity and innovation, but also consider the ways in which an exhibition or programme can change the course of museum thinking or museum practice.  Learn more about their outstanding programmes in an exclusive session at the biennial Hands On! Conference 22-26 October 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
