14 Henrietta Street nominated for European Museum of the Year Award
14 Henrietta Street has been nominated for the prestigious European Museum of the Year Award. The museum is the only Irish nomination for the European Museum Forum’s EMYA 2020 awards, and will vie with 60 museums across Europe for the title.
The EMF / EMYA is concerned with developing the quality of European museums. The EMYA is awarded to a museum that contributes most directly to attracting audiences and satisfying its visitors with unique atmosphere, imaginative interpretation and presentation, along with a creative approach to education and social responsibility. The competition is open to new museums that have opened to the public in the past three years, or an established museum that has completed a substantial programme of modernisation, extension, re-organisation or re-interpretation during the past three years.
