Museum of Troy in Çanakkale was nominated for Museum of the Year Award by European Museum Forum.
The Museum of Troy was built on an area of 11.314 m2 on 100 acres of land in the entrance of Troy ruins. The fact that the height of the museum building is equal to the height of the ancient city of Troy prior to the excavation allows Troy to be kept alive here with all the details. The Museum of Troy, which is one of the most important examples of the contemporary archaeological museums chosen by more than 150 projects by an internationally respected jury committee in the National Architectural Design Competition, was opened to visitors in October 2018, Troy Year.
The European Museum Forum (EMF) provides the legal and organizational framework for the annual European Museum of the Year Award scheme (EMYA).
