Forest Hill museum wins national prize
A FOREST Hill museum has won an award for its family-friendliness.
The Horniman Museum and Gardens was jointly awarded the Telegraph’s Family Friendly Museum Award with the Brixham Heritage Museum in Devon.
A long list of 20 was whittled down to a six-strong shortlist in July before a team of family judges visited each venue anonymously over the summer holidays to pick a winner.
The results were announced on Friday (September 13).
Kids in Museums director Dea Birkett said: “The Horniman has always been a big hitter in the world of family friendly museums, offering events and supporting activities for families which are pioneering in the field.
“Family friendliness touches everything the museum does, whether it’s the lower handrail for kids to hold on to going down the stairs to the packed-out regular storytelling sessions, they prove that a world class collection and catering to families goes hand in hand.
“The strong community engagement was particularly noted by the panel of expert judges.”
