Kids in Museums awards the Family Friendly Museum Award annually to one museum, gallery, historic home or heritage site that has made outstanding efforts to welcome children and families and respond to their feedback.

Launched back in 2004, the award gives a voice to young and family visitors and is the only museum award in Britain to be judged by families.

The Family Friendly Museum of the Year 2018 was announced on 1 October 2018 as Leeds City Museum.

How do we nominate our museum for the award?

Nominations for the Family Friendly Museum Award can be made by anyone – children, parents, carers, grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins – or museums themselves.

Kids in Museums welcomes nominations for museums of all sizes, from national museums with teams of curators, to tiny local galleries run by volunteers.

Nominations for the Family Friendly Museum Award 2019 are now open.

You can nominate a museum by filling in a form on their website before noon on 31 May.
