The War Childhood Museum is recognized as one of Europe’s 50 most influential museums in the past 40 years!
We are proud of the WCM’s inclusion in “Revisiting Museums of Influence: Four Decades of Innovation and Public Quality in European Museums”, edited by Mark O’Neill, Jette Sandahl and Marlen Mouliou. This book aims to give a comprehensive look at museum institutions that deal with a range of different subject matter, providing essential knowledge for museum professionals and scholars, but also students of museology, art history, anthropology, and many other related fields.
“Revisiting Museums of Influence presents 50 portraits of a range of European museums that have made striking innovations in public quality over the past 40 years. In so doing, the book demonstrates that excellence can be found in museums no matter their subject matter, scale, or source of funding.
Written by leading professionals in the field of museology, who have acted as judges for the European Museum of the Year Award, the portraits describe museums that had, or should have had, an influence on other museums around the world. The portraits aim to capture the moment when this potential was identified, and the introduction will locate the institutions in the wider history of museums in Europe over the period, as well as drawing out common themes of change and innovation that unite the portraits.”
