The Museum Oskars 2015


At the beginning of a new year, everyone likes to look back on the old year, so by popular request we’re bringing back the Museum Oskars this year!

The Museum Oskars are your chance to nominate your favourite museums and best museum experiences of the PAST YEAR! Just to be clear, not your favourite/ best museums of all time, just out of the ones you visited in 2014 (it’s called the 2015 Oskars because that’s when we’re doing them, in case you were wondering). Nominations will be open for two weeks, and at the end of January we’ll write up the results and share out all the museum love.

The museums themselves don’t win anything – other than that warm fuzzy feeling you get when someone loves you a lot, which actually we think is quite a good prize (and we’ll also create a wee badge to display on their website, should any museum wish to do so). But we’ll be drawing a name at random out of everyone who makes a nomination, to receive a little surprise parcel from us.

By the way, as before, you will notice there aren’t any questions about best use of digital/social media etc. There are already plenty of awards out there for that, and we wanted to concentrate on the good old fashioned physical museum visits and experiences.

There are 12 categories in total. Answers are optional, so if a category really doesn’t apply to you (e.g. you didn’t use an audio guide), just skip it. You can also nominate the same museum for several categories. So, come on and help spread the museum love. Vote now!

PS: Our German speaking followers may also make their nominations in German, we’ll translate them for the summary. Sorry, no other languages as we only speak English and German. // Unsere Deutsch sprachigen Fans dürfen die Fragen auch auf Deutsch beantworten, wir übersetzen das dann für die Zusammenfassung.
