Museum of the Year Award will go to five winners this year 6 Aug 2020

The Art Fund has increased the prize for its annual Museum of the Year award by 40% to £200k and has announced that it will be shared between five winners. The decision is in response to the problems and financial pressures facing museums. After the winners are announced on 12th October, Art Fund will host events and online activity to celebrate the work of UK museums. As in previous years, the Museum of the Year partnership with the BBC will continue, with national coverage of the award ceremony. Art Fund, M + H, Art Newspaper, Museums Journal
