Helsinki City Museum awarded for its accessibility
The City of Helsinki Council on Disability awarded the Helsinki City Museum for its accessibility. The council awards yearly a person, community or unit that has worked in a successful manner for the disabled inhabitants of Helsinki. The grounds for the award highlighted the role of culture in wellbeing.
In addition to the accessibility award, the Helsinki City Museum has received two other awards lately. The Children’s Town was awarded as the child-friendliest place in Helsinki. Svenska Kvinnoförbundet i Sörnäs, LillaLuckan and Ung Martha give out the award yearly.
Also Effie Awards recognized the launch campaign of the museum. Amongst other things, the campaign encouraged to use the museum in new ways and to be emotional in the museum space.
