2014 Telegraph Family Friendly Awards

Kids in Museums have published the list of twenty museums which ‘shone out’ as offering a fantastic family visit, as voted for by families themselves.

Congratulations go to the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, The Lightbox, Surrey, Rural Life Centre, Surrey and the Watts Gallery, Surrey, who all made it on to the list.

The ‘long list’ will now be put before a panel of celebrities and experts, chaired by Jenny Abramsky, Chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund who will whittle it down to a shortlist of Britain’s most family friendly museums. The shortlist will be announced in July and is then tested anonymously by families. For more info, take a look at Awards - Kids In Museums.
