Mu­seum short­listed for pres­ti­gious award

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

PARC Howard in Llanelli has been short­listed for the pres­ti­gious Fam­ily Friendly Mu­seum Award.

Char­ity Kids in Mu­se­ums awards the prize an­nu­ally to one mu­seum, gallery, his­toric home or her­itage site that goes the ex­tra mile to pro­vide a great fam­ily ex­pe­ri­ence.

Through­out April and May, fam­i­lies across the coun­try voted for their favourite her­itage at­trac­tion on the Kids in Mu­se­ums web­site.

A panel of mu­seum ex­perts whit­tled down over 800 nom­i­na­tions to a short­list of 15.

The mu­seum will now be vis­ited by un­der­cover fam­ily judges who will as­sess the mu­se­ums against the Kids in Mu­se­ums Man­i­festo. Their ex­pe­ri­ences will de­cide a win­ner for each award cat­e­gory and an over­all win­ner, our Fam­ily Friendly Mu­seum of the Year 2019.

The coun­cil’s ex­ec­u­tive board mem­ber for cul­tural ser­vices, Cllr Peter Hughes-Grif­fiths, said: “It re­ally is ex­cit­ing times for Parc Howard Mu­seum. To have been nom­i­nated for such a pres­ti­gious award is just su­perb and is tes­ta­ment to the fam­ily friendly en­vi­ron­ment we have been work­ing to cre­ate within the mu­seum.”

The win­ners will be an­nounced at an awards cer­e­mony in Lon­don in Oc­to­ber.

Park Howard,Llanelli.
