Portimão votes for European Museum

José Gameiro, director of Portimão Museum, was invited to join the jury of this year’s European Museum Forum after the Algarve facility won the Council of Europe Museum Prize in 2010. This year’s winner was the Museum of Liverpool (pictured) for its contribution to the understanding of European cultural heritage. The prize-giving ceremony will be held in March in Strasburg. Last year’s winner was the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum in Cologne, Germany.
