Award for Oxford's Pitt-Rivers & Natural History Museum,3604,1522009,00.html
Thanks to my mother, former Oxford resident and Guardian reader for sending me this item: "The Pitt Rivers and Natural History Museum in Oxford won the Guardian Family Friendly Museum Award the day before yesterday, in the first national museum competition judged entirely by children. This year, the second year of the competition, the adults gave way to children aged 8-16 who spent hours arguing the merits of the five shortlisted museums. They were seduced finally by the Oxford museums' backpacks, available to young visitors, which contain treasures such as real bones and shark's teeth".
