The European Museum of the Year Award is the longest running and most prestigious museum award in Europe, presented each year by the European Museum Forum under the auspices of the Council of Europe.

The European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) was founded in 1977 under the auspices of the Council of Europe, with the aim of recognizing excellence in the European museum scene and encouraging innovative processes in a museum world which still took the more traditional view to focus exclusively on collections rather than on their use for the benefit of society.

This award goes to a museum which contributes most directly to attracting audiences and satisfying its visitors with unique atmosphere, imaginative interpretation and presentation, a creative approach to education and social responsibility.

The European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) is a unique award aiming to highlight importance of cultural heritage protection and its popularization as a factor uniting 47 Council of Europe member states.
