Alūksne museum nominated for top international award

The European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) 2022 Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony will take place at the Estonian National Museum in Tartu from 4-7 May 2022, and Latvia will have a keen interest with news that Alūksne Bānītis Station from Latvia is nominated for the title of European Museum of the Year 2022.

The Estonian National Museum hosts EMYA 2022 as the Kenneth Hudson Prize winner from 2018. It’s an award that is given to most unusual and daring achievement that challenges common perceptions of the role of museums in society.

The museum is offering all attendees an opportunity to get to know the museum (a popular day trip destination for Latvians, too), the city of Tartu (European Capital of Culture 2024) and other museums in Estonia.

The full EMYA event programme and details can be found on the conference website.

In fact the 33-km-long narrow-gauge railway line that terminates in Alūksne is unusually well served, as at the other end of the line in Gulbene is another excellent railway museum.
