Museum of the Year 2015 shortlist

04/27/2015

The finalists are:

Dunham Massey (National Trust), Altrincham
IWM London
The MAC, Belfast
Oxford University Museum of Natural History
HM Tower of London (Historic Royal Palaces) – Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red
The Whitworth, Manchester

I am rather biased – I worked on the refurbished First World War galleries at the IWM – but of the others that I’ve seen, the MAC is a fantastic new arts venue for Belfast, and the Tower poppies were a remarkable phenomenon. I did some work at the Oxford Museum of Natural History a decade or so ago and it can’t be beaten for sheer Victorian Gothic splendour, and its array of skeletons, fossils and taxidermied animals.
