Student Road Trip

This year for the first time we sent five Student Art Pass members on a five-day whistlestop tour of all the finalists. After departing on the Monday 11th June for Brooklands Museum the students visited Glasgow Women's Library, Ferens Art Gallery, Tate St Ives, before finishing up at the Postal Museum on the Friday 15th June.

The students captured their journey on social media and you can take a look back at their adventures on Twitter and Instagram via #MuseumoftheYear and watch video highlights of the tour.
