our new museum

Art Fund judges visit the Mary Rose Museum

As you may know, the Mary Rose Museum has been entered in the Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year 2014, and today we had the judging panel in to give us the once over!


The five judges, Sally Bacon, Prof. Michael Craig Martin RA CBE, Wim Pijbes, Anna Somers Cocks OBE FSA and their chair Stephen Deuchar CBE were given a tour by our Chief Executive, John Lippiett CBE, which took in all parts of the museum, including some of the areas not usually on show to the public!

They appeared to enjoy their visit, so who knows, maybe next month we’ll be announcing that we won!
