Porto has the only nominated museum

​The MMIPO - Museum and Church of Misericórdia do Porto is the only Portuguese museum among 40 institutions from different countries nominated for the 2019 European Museum of the Year Award, revealed the institution from Porto.

Celebrating its 3rd anniversary, MMIPO (located in Rua das Flores) is thus included in the restricted lot of potential winners running for Europe's oldest and most prestigious museum award.

The EMYA (European Museum of the Year Award), whose latest winner was the Design Museum in London, will be awarded to the museum that attracts the most audience and has the highest satisfaction levels, with a unique atmosphere, innovative and creative presentation, and social responsibility.

The winners of previous years have in common the fact that they have changed the parameters of quality perception of European museums.

The European Museum of the Year Award is awarded annually by the European Museums Forum under the auspices of the Council of Europe.
