Celebrating Museum Best Practice Worldwide

The Leading Culture Destinations Awards recognise and celebrate the new breed of museums, galleries and cultural institutions worldwide. As new audiences for art have opened up, so the places where art has traditionally been displayed are responding with new ideas in exhibition programming, concerts and cross-cultural events, premium restaurants, high-end retail offers, work and meeting spaces – all encased in buildings designed by the world’s best architects and designers.
