Kids in Museums open nominations for the 2018 Family Friendly Museum Award

The Family Friendly Museum Award 2018 has been launched, giving museums and visitors the chance to say why their museum, gallery, heritage site, science centre or historic home gives the warmest welcome to families. The Award - the biggest museum award in the country – and the only one where families pick the winner – is run by charity Kids in Museums. Kids in Museums works with museums nationwide to help them welcome families and children.

Kids in Museums said: "Nominations can be made by anyone – children, parents, visitors, visitor organisations and museums themselves. The museum can be volunteer-run or boast a team of curators. It can be best known for its outstanding collection of French 19th century porcelain or be alive with high-tech interactives (or both!). What matters most is that it goes that extra mile to provide an excellent family friendly experience."

Deadline for nominations: noon on Thursday 31 May 2018
