The Children in Museums Award is a joint venture between Hands On! and the European Museum Academy. It was launched back in 2011 and its aim is to reward the hard work of creative and innovative exhibitions aimed at children up to 14 years old.

Besides the innovation, the judges value the ways the exhibition can change the museum’s practices. That is why they pay special attention to interpretation and presentation.
