Recently the Leading Culture Destinations Awards, “The Oscars for Museums,” were announced at the brand new Trafalgar St. James hotel. The winners were chosen by a jury of nine established cultural specialists. Now in its fourth year, they have celebrated museums and cities for their dedication to their dynamic cultural approach and the winners were chosen based on the quality and reach of their contributions to the international cultural sphere.

The judges review everything from audacious programming and management structures, to cross-sector collaborations and Michelin-starred restaurants, late night openings and music performances, with an overarching focus on a visionary approach to these cultural initiatives. The winners were presented with a trophy designed by United Visual Artists.
