BOOK CEREMONY TICKETS

The Museums + Heritage Awards celebrate the very best in the world of museums, galleries, and cultural and heritage visitor attractions.

We believe that excellence knows no boundaries, and talent is limitless, regardless of where it comes from. We’re on a mission to celebrate the rich tapestry of experiences and the multitude of voices that make up our sector. 

The Awards are open to all museums, galleries, archives, and cultural and heritage organisations, both digital and in-person. We welcome and encourage entries from everyone; from individuals and organisations that connect objects, stories and spaces with audiences and people, as well as the individuals, companies and organisations which support their work. 

Each entry is judged on its own merit and the shortlist frequently features brilliant examples of low-cost, creative projects. There’s a chance for everyone but, as the saying goes, you have to be in it to win it!

Best of luck to everyone who has entered!
