Congratulations to the women’s museum Hittisau!

Jun 14, 2017

The women’s museum Hittisau will receive the Austrian museum prize of 2017, which is the highest public award for museums in Austria. This is a reason to celebrate, not only for the women’s museum Hittisau, but for us all!

The women’s museum Hittisau was opened as the first women’s museum in Austria in 2000. Since 17 years it shows two to three exhibitions each year. It promotes the culture of women and encourages discussions especially in the rural area, where it is situated. The explanatory statement of the award says that women’s museums are never comfortable. But especially in rural areas the courage for direct confrontation and integration are needed, in order to initiate change.

We congratulate the women’s museum Hittisau to this award!
