PHM wins Museums + Heritage Award

30 April 2015

Museums + Heritage AwardsThe museum is thrilled to have won a Museums + Heritage Award 2015, Guardian Culture Pros Pick!

The Guardian Culture Professionals Network teamed up once again with the annual Museums + Heritage Awards to launch a search for the UK’s most inspiring museum or heritage visitor attraction of the past 12 months.  Following more than 400 suggestions for the 2015 award, PHM was one of five venues to receive the most nominations to go through to a public online vote, up against Yorkshire Sculpture Park, King Richard III Visitor Centre, Kelmscott Manor and Haslemere Educational Museum.

Katy Ashton, PHM Director said: ‘We’re delighted to have won this award.  It’s such a great achievement for the People’s History Museum to have received so many votes from colleagues in the cultural sector and from members of the public.  It’s fantastic recognition of our work and demonstrates the love that so many people have for our museum.  It’s no coincidence that as the national museum of democracy we can motivate and inspire people to vote for us!’

One of the museum’s Trustees Wayne Garvie collected the award at the glittering awards ceremony at 8 Northumberland Avenue in London last night.  Visit the Museums + Heritage website to see a list of all the winning venues.
