A Peep at last year award ceremony

DMIM was invited to the 20th Techforum and Alizee talk on the Moving Image astounded all these people who discovered for the first time the archaeology of the digital mediums

The end of the school year saw the museum fully booked with school visits, it is such a joy to see the space filled with kids! We are now operating reduced opening times during the Holy month of Ramadan and we are preparing new programs for the next school year.

Great time was had by all and we want to express a great thank you to all our visitors, teachers and kids.
