The Estonian National Museum (ERM) clinched the Kenneth Hudson prize for second place in the European Museum of the Year Awards (EMYA) in Warsaw, Poland.
Top prize went to the London Design Museum. EMYA jury chair and European Museum Forum board member José Gameiro noted how the ERM preserves and interprets memories in a way that makes the museum an inclusive and creative learning environment for all. "The ERM is engaged in a complex and controversial history, and sees its main task of collecting and preserving memories in order to create a new way of having a cultural dialogue which links the past with the future," Gameiro explained. "The ERM has given the concept of a national museum a new meaning through a dialogue-based, multi-voiced and participatory approach to cultural history"
