Netherlands Museums Association: Jubilee Award "Kids Proof Museums" in 2016

The Netherlands Museums Association (NMA) has a special platform for children: One of its activities is Museum Inspectors, which aims to declare "Kids Proof Museums". Museum Inspectors are children until the age of 12 that register on the platform. In a number of closed and open questions, they give their opinion about the museum, what they like and what could be improved. All NMA affiliated museums that have received 40 or more inspections in the latest inspection period, and to whom the inspecting children have given an average grade of at least 7.5, may call themselves “Kids proof”. The museum with the highest average score in 2016 was announced on 14 October. The Pieter Vermeulen Museum received the most points. This year showed a record number of inspections, more than 11000 by 5865 Young Museum Inspectors, resulting in no less than 59 museums spread across the country which may call themselves "Kids proof".
