Discover the new format of the DASA Award !


 This Award is open to all kinds of museums.

The DASA Award

The basic criterion of this award is the quality of learning opportunities, in a comprehensive perspective: the museological concept, the quality of the storyline, the creativity of the exhibition design and the programme of educational activities . Specific attention is also given to personal mediation, the interactive participation of the public and an effective mix of education and entertainment.

DASA in Dortmund covers the past, present and future worlds of work in an area of about 13.000 m², with 12 exhibition units and three-dimensional exhibits.  It is the permanent educational facility of the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Care (Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin) and informs the general public about the world of work, its status for the individual and society, and the importance of tailoring work to human requirements.  The relationship between people, work and technology is demonstrated and explained in a variety of ways in the exhibition.  The central theme is to establish human values at work, such as good health and dignity.
DASA focuses on people and their physical, intellectual, social and cultural needs.
