The National Gallery of Denmark wins the 2014 Children in Museums Award

The National Gallery of Denmark wins the 2014 Children in Museums Award - European Museum Academy

Now in its third year and renamed the Children in Museums Award, it has been conferred during the Bologna Children’s Book Fair on March 26th.

 

The winner is the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK). 

 

The Gallery has an impressive collection of European, French and Danish art from the Middle Ages to the present day.Renovations have taken place in recent years and a modern glass façade was added to the old building, offering a superb view of the park. Children and young people have long been the focus of attention, with a team of museum educators working exclusively for children. The main target group is 6-12 year-olds.

 

The judges said: We are unanimous in praising the in-depth and high quality presentation, materials and programmes, which are unique for an art museum. Marianne Grymer Bargeman’s thorough work, knowledge, experience and conviction has raised awareness of children as a museum target group. Children are taken seriously by curators and director, and ideas from the children’s presentation are adapted in the main museum. Complex subjects, well researched, are made accessible to children and offer a unique, surprising and stimulating environment based on the idea of freedom of thought and an original approach. The combination of workshop spaces, exhibition area and drawing room is a unique idea. The jury also highlighted the way the children’s exhibition connects children and parents to
the museum using educational tools, as well as commenting on the importance of documentation of the exhibitions and their evaluation in co-operation with external scholars. 

 

The Award was established by the European Museum Academy and Hands On! International in co-operation with the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for the recognition of excellence in the specific sector of international children’s museums and in the specialist provision for children within the museum sector internationally.
