Museums Awards Scheme
Due to current budget restraints, the Heritage Council is no longer in a position to run this Award Scheme.
The Museum Awards aimed to highlight and celebrate the achievements of museums and collections, together with their curators and staff, as they strived to care for and protect our heritage, and to make it as accessible to as many people as possible. The Heritage Council, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Museums Council ran the Museum Awards biennially. At the Awards Ceremony held in Iveagh House, Dublin on 18th May 2009, awards were presented to various Museums in the North and in the Republic under the following categories:
- Collections Care
- Education & Community Engagement
- Local Authority Museums
- Exhibition and Publications
- Museum of the Year
