The Children in Museums Award Ceremony

Every year Hands On! International Association of Children in Museums and the European Museum Academy shortlist innovative high-quality children’s programs for the Children in Museums Award.

Part one of the ceremony is a unique chance to learn from the best: The short-listed candidates for the Children in Museums Award 2019 will present themselves and their outstanding projects.

The second part of the ceremony including the winner announcement takes place in the Frankfurt “Emperors’ Hall”.




Originally the coronation banquet of the freshly crowned Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire of German Nation took place in the Emperors’ Hall. Today it is the banquet hall for all important receptions: John F. Kennedy, the Dalai Lama and the victorious German soccer national teams have all been welcomed there, and signed the Golden Book of the City of Frankfurt.
