The Children in Museums Award was established in 2011 by the European Museum Academy and Hands On! International Association of Children in Museums.  It recognises excellence and innovation in exhibits designed for children within the museum sector.

The Jury

The Award is judged by a panel of experts experienced in many disciplines within the museum field who all contribute their time as volunteers.

The judges are looking especially for museums, exhibitions and programmes and museum environments which:

  • Display creativity and innovation
  • Encourage children’s curiosity and stimulate their imagination
  • Have well-researched and conceived content which is appropriately targeted and meaningful to the relevant age-group



Applications are welcomed from children’s museums; from education children and youth departments in museums; and from specialist subject museums with a particular emphasis on children’s programming.  Museums may be long-established or recently opened.   However, priority is given to programmes which display recent innovation.  The project entered for the Award must be current and open for viewing in the judging year.

The closing date for applications is 15 March 2017
