Let’s YouTube nominated for Children in Museums Award

Let’s YouTube, the world’s first exhibition about YouTube, has been nominated for the Children in Museums Award. This highly interactive exhibition, designed by NorthernLight for the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, enables visitors to experience the impact YouTube has on their lives. The exhibition has received a lot of attention in the media and on social media since its opening in October last year.

Let’s YouTube is designed to be one big adventure, based on gamification principles. At a series of game stations, visitors test their knowledge about the history, impact and effects of YouTube. After completing this ‘YouTube Challenge’, they can unlock one of the YouTube Rooms; three high tech studios where they create their own video to upload . While they wait for their video to be uploaded, they can get some inspiration from the YouTube wall, showing the best of YouTube worldwide.

The winner of the Children in Museums Award will be announced during the Award ceremony at the Hands On! Conference, which will take place from 11 – 14 October in Pilzen, Czech Republic. The Award is a joint venture between Hands On! and the European Museum Academy and will be handed out to the most creative and innovative exhibition or programme for the age group up to 14 years old.
