Museum of the Year goes to Whitworth Art Gallery

Whitworth Art Gallery

Congratulations to Whitworth Gallery for winning Museum of the Year 2015.  It is great to see a local Manchester museum take home the accolade.

Whitworth director Maria Balshaw accepted the award, which included £100,000, from the Art Fund at the Tate Modern last night. An extra 30,000 people have visited the museum since its £15m investment; the largest physical transformation it had seen in it’s 125-year history.
