Luigi Micheletti Award 2016 Winner
Den Gamle By - Aarhus (Denmark)

The judges said that Den Gamle By is a pioneering institution in the museological handling of the pressing social questions of our time. It is a museum for the people in the truest sense, showing great courage in addressing relevant subjects which elsewhere often fall victim to a nostalgic-romantic view of history. Den Gamle By makes a visit to the museum a communicative and inspiring experience. It demonstrates strikingly that culture is a wonderful way of reaching out to society. The jury had no hesitation in voting unanimously for this museum as the winner of the 2016 Micheletti Award
