Cardiff Story Museum has been named Best Leisure and Tourism Venue at the Cardiff Life Awards.
The Museum which is based in The Old Library on The Hayes, was praised for being “a brilliant facility with something for all ages” and “providing a special experience for locals as well as tourists.”
Cardiff Story Museum opened in 2011 and last year held 119 events and 16 exhibitions.
Director of Economic Development at City of Cardiff Council, Neil Hanratty said:
“Huge congratulations to the entire team at Cardiff Story Museum for this well-deserved award. The work done at the museum helps to showcase the heritage of our great city in a very engaging and informative way. A fact recognised by two previous awards this year from the Welsh Government and Visit Wales.”
Cardiff Story Museum Manager, Victoria Rogers said:
“We’ve highlighted some of Cardiff’s hidden histories, for example that a Cardiff gardener designed New York’s Rockefeller building rooftop gardens and how the Greenham Common protests started with a march from Cardiff. We have also hosted beautiful large scale sculptures created by the Hindu community to celebrate their Durga Puja festival, spreading the word amongst the wider Cardiff community. So it’s really wonderful that all the hard work put in over the last twelve months has been recognised by the Cardiff Life judges.”
