RAMM is one of only ten museums in the running to win the annual £100,000 Art Fund prize and the prestigious title of 'Museum of the Year'.
The 2012 finalists were described by Art Fund as a varied and exciting list showcasing the best of British culture, from local history to contemporary sculpture.
Council Leader Pete Edwards, said “We are absolutely delighted that RAMM has received the recognition that we, the people of Exeter, know it deserves. The museum has served the city and the region so well over the last 140 years. The redevelopment has made a well-loved museum great; a truly world-class museum that reflects the vitality of the city and will serve us for decades to come.”
The purpose of The Art Fund Prize for museums and galleries is to recognise and stimulate originality and excellence in museums and galleries in the UK, and increase public appreciation and enjoyment of all they have to offer.
The Art Fund website gives details of the ten finalists and an opportunity to tell the judges why we deserve to win.
