Germany's Ozeaneum is the European Museum of the Year
Visitors queue in front of the maritime museum 'Ozeaneum' in Stralsund, Germany. The rather cold weather has boosted visitor numbers to more than 1,000 per day. The Ozeaneum has been awarded the European Museum of the Year award, which was handed over in Tampere, Finnland on 22 May 2010. EPA/STEFAN SAUER.
LIVERPOOL.- At the European Museum of the Year Award Ceremony on Saturday 22nd of May, in front of an audience of more than 160 museum professionals from 22 European countries, the Ozeaneum Museum in Stralsund, Germany was announced as the winner of the European Museum of the Year Award for 2010.

Mikhail Gnedovsky, Chairman of the European Museum Forum (EMF) which gives the European Museum of the Year Award, in congratulating the museum said:

- Ozeaneum has succeeded brilliantly in interpreting its scientific data in a clear way to make it understandable to a wide range of visitors, and uses many visual images which will be long remembered.

- The main award goes to a museum which contributes most directly to attracting and satisfying its visitors with unique atmosphere, imaginative interpretation and presentation, creative approach to education and social responsability, - said Dr. Gnedovsky.

The conference, culminating in the presentation of the European Museum of the Year Award was held in Tampere, Finland, on 19–22 May. In total, 42 new or renewed museums competed for the title of European Museum of the Year.

Receiving special commendations were the Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels, the Science Gallery in Dublin, and the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam.

This is the 33rd year that the European Museum Forum has run the competition, which is the premier museum award in Europe. The EMF also judged the Council of Europe's annual museum prize, which went to the Museum of Portimao in Portugal.

Ozeaneum in Stralsund, Germany opened in July 2008. This is the fourth part of the complex belonging to the German Oceanographic Museum. The five exhibition areas are complemented by a series of aquaria, which show the extraordinary variety and diversity of life in the North Sea, the Baltic, and the North Atlantic. Among the organisations that have co-operated to create the exhibitions is Greenpeace. Ozeaneum clearly introduces a new language and continues an already visible trend: aquaria are coming closer to museums every day and vice versa. In making its decision, the EMF judges recognised that Ozeaneum represents a new step, combining aquaria and zoos on the one hand with modern scientific museums on the other.
