Money Museum Wins Dasa Award
The National Bank of Hungary's Money Museum has been named the 2023 winner of the European Museum Academy's Dasa Award for quality of learning opportunities in museums, according to novekedes.hu.
With its "state-of-the-art tools and exhibition organization practices," the contest judges said the museum offers visitors an "interactive, entertaining" way to learn about financial processes, how money works, and the activities of the central bank in Hungary.
"The museum is well on its way in its ambition to become a center for financial education and culture in Hungary, and the way it does this is an example for other bank museums," the judges said.
The European Museum Academy noted that most of the exhibition content is in English and Chinese, in addition to Hungarian.
In a statement issued by the Hungarian Money Museum, director Eszter Hergár said the institution had drawn more than 135,000 visitors during its first year and a half of operation.
