Museum Oskars 2016: Roundup

So, that was it, our third year of ‘Museum Oskars’. Many thanks to everyone who took the time to tell us how much they love museums, and congratulations to all the winners! Some museums’ fans came out in force to show their love, nominating ‘their’ museum in as many categories as applicable. But hey, if you genuinely love a certain museum that much, then good for you! But the majority of nominations were spread across a broad range of museums, showing that people had really thought about what struck a chord with them last year. If we repeat this again in the future, we may change the voting process but as we said, in our eyes this year everyone is a winner!

Here’s a full overview of all the winners that have been announced this week. If you are one of the winning museums, feel free to use the badges on your websites, blogs or social media profiles if you wish.
