The award was given based on feedback by tourists to the Museum during 2014, as well as a visit by the local representative of the guide, who praised the Museum’s hard work in putting up information in both Chinese & Japanese.
Director Arturo del Pino said he was thrilled about the award and planned to put up the distinction at the entrance to the museum. He says he will continue to ensure that Japanese & Chinese audio and written guides be available, and plans to renew a contract with the University of Almería to allow Chinese students from Changchum University to study at the Museum.
Other Spanish museums which received this award include Bilbao’s Guggenheim and the Human Evolution Museum of Burgos.
If you haven’t been to the Museum, it’s well worth a visit next time you’re in Almería.
