The search for the UK’s most family friendly museum is now on! Kids in Museums (KiM) award the prize annually to one museum, gallery, historic home or heritage site in the UK that goes the extra mile to provide a great experience for families.
For the first time this year, in addition to one overall winner, KiM has introduced award categories based on museums’ visit numbers: Small, Medium and Large Museum.
It is also providing new guidance on how to apply and how to promote nominations from your visitors. Learn more on the website.
Nominations are now open to both families and museums until noon on 31 May.
In June an expert panel will whittle down the nominations to a shortlist. Undercover family judges will then visit each shortlisted museum and assess them on how well they meet the new Kids in Museums Manifesto. The family judges’ experiences will decide the winner for each category. An expert panel will then pick an overall winner to be announced at an awards ceremony in October 2019.
