Museum shortlisted for prestigious award
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.
