The 1997 European Museum of the Year Award
Abstract:The European Museum of the Year Award recognizes above all ‘the public virtues’ of a museum and is restricted to new museums and to museums that have recently been completely reorganized. First granted in 1977, it functions under the auspices of the Council of Europe and is administered by an independent authority, the European Museum Forum, a non-profit-making body registered in the United Kingdom. Jurors are drawn from a broad spectrum of European countries and they visit from fifty to sixty museums each year. Kenneth Hudson has been director of the award since its inception.
