Distinctions

The Council of Europe Museum Prize

In 2007, the Museum won the Council of Europe Museum Prize. This important distinction has been handed out every year since 1977 to an institution that makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the cultural heritage of Europe. The prize aims to promote greater awareness of the rich diversity of European culture. It is awarded by the Commission for Culture, Science and Education of the Parliamentary Assembly based on the recommendations of the Committee of the European Museum Forum.
