Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence 2015

The winners of the Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence were announced on the 29 April at a glittering, packed out, ceremony at 8 Northumberland. View the 2015 winners here!

What a fantastic evening and congratulations to all this year’s finalists and winners! Check out our video to see who walked away with this year's coveted Awards!

A special thank you to the wonderful Marcus Brigstocke for entertaining us all evening and our partners and sponsors for making this year’s Awards even more special. A special thank you to BECK for helping us celebrate late into the evening by sponsoring the After Awards Party.

The annual Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence, now in its thirteenth year, recognise projects of excellence, innovative and groundbreaking exhibitions from galleries and visitor attractions across the UK and Europe. These range from remarkable achievements of national institutions to projects crafted with limited resources and those championing their staff and volunteers who work hard to deliver inspiring visitor experiences.

Among the big winners were Historic Royal Palaces who not only walked away with the Temporary or Touring Exhibition Award for their groundbreaking First World War commemoration - "The Tower Remembers” but thier Cheif Executive was also honored with Outstanding Contribution by an Individual to the sector. People's History Museum was crowned Guardian Culture Pros Pick as voted for by the public after a record number of votes received.

The Awards are judged by a panel of the sector's leading lights including, Diane Lees, Director General, Imperial War Museum; Bernard Donoghue, Director, Association of Leading Visitor Atrractions (ALVA) and other leading sector professionals.
