We are honoured to have been long listed for the prestigious national Telegraph Family Friendly Museum Awards 2015.

Run by charity ‘Kids in Museums’, the award is one of the largest in the Museum sector, and is designed for museums that ‘go the extra mile to welcome families and visitors of all ages’.

The Museum beat off stiff competition from over 800 nominations. The longlist will now be put before a panel of experts, including celebrity children’s author Damian Dibben and historian and broadcaster Helen Castor who will choose just six museums. These six museums are road-tested anonymously by families who will vote for the final winner, and we will find out the results in coming months.

Laura Wakelin, Director of Communications and Marketing comments: “we are very excited to be long listed for this very prestigious award. The Museum has been a favourite amongst families since its opening and that is something we want to continue to do – immerse families, young and old, into 300 years of Black Country history.”
