British Museum Wins

Jun 17th, 2011 | By

Last night the British Museum won the Art Fund Prize of £100,000.
You will remember that there were three finalists apart from the BM; the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, the Polar Research Museum and the Roman Baths in Bath.



Final Four for the Art Fund Prize

May 20th, 2011 | By

Yesterday the judges announced which would be the final four museums left in the competition to win this year’s £100,000 prize.
They are the British Museum in London, the Polar Exploration Museum in Cambridge, the Roman Baths in Bath and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway. Rather than these museums being selected for being just what they are, they have gone through to the next round because they have created something which, in the view of the judges, is exceptional.
