Museum of the Year identifies the finest museums in the UK and awards £100,000 to the very best. The Prize champions what museums do, encourages more people to visit, and gets to the heart of what makes a truly outstanding museum. 

The 2015 winner was the Whitworth (pictured), which – following a £15m development – has redefined the way that it engages with its public, connecting its building and surrounding park to create a space with a strong sense of openness and invitation.
