The LAM museum has been nominated for the European Museum of the Year Award 2021. The award is the oldest and most prestigious museum prize in Europe. New or existing museums with major innovations can compete for the title.
Director Sietske van Zanten: “The nomination is a wonderful recognition for our innovative museum concept in which not art but the visitor is central. Here we make non-museum enthusiasts in particular enthusiastic with and for art.”
