Six museums have been shortlisted for the latest £100,000 Art Fund Prize for the Museum of the Year, which celebrates the very best of the UK’s cultural institutions. This year’s award has been judged by the artist Michael Landy; Alice Rawthorn, design critic and author; Fiammetta Rocco, books and arts editor of The Economist; and Axel Rüger, director of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
The winner will be announced in a ceremony at the Tate Modern on Friday 1 July. Who do you think should win?
