It was a night to remember – a celebration of all that the UK's museum sector has to offer, from local gems to world-famous tourist attractions. But there could only be one winner: Wakefield's wonderful Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which was chosen by our judges from a shortlist including Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, Hayward Gallery, Mary Rose Museum, Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and Tate Britain.

Watch our film to see what happened on the night – from film and theatre director Sam Mendes's announcement to YSP founder Peter Murray's acceptance speech.
