Meet the finalists for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2018



we have this sort of unwritten motto which is we want people to play with our toys so one of the key innovations last year was the aircraft factory with its assembly line approach to the display of our collection Oh 2017 was the year it all came together and all of a sudden that started to make sense to people 20:17 was certainly a transformative year for us we have never seen anything like it both in terms of the scale of our commissioning and their programming that we did a lot some corpsicle change lives the city was on a high the public won a tie people came from all across the world to come and see us and we proved that article to make the place better we are absolutely rooted in our values specifically in equality diversity and inclusion so we're really modeling what a museum looks like when it's built on feminist foundations as soon as I came in the door I just felt at home which sounds like it's like the most cliche thing you could say but here it's really true like you just really feel welcome when you arrive [Applause] the postal story is incredibly important part of British history it touches the lives of everyone very much the story we tell is the story of the first social network it's been a huge transformation project for us is taking us from being a limited access 3,000 visitor a year archive to 185 thousand visitors a year projected museum and attraction the space is literally doubled in size and it allows us so many more opportunities you can see the potential of this new gallery to show some of the most exciting art to be able to have a gallery like this instantize that's just amazing and the fact that it's so accessible for everybody I think I love the tape because of the opportunity it gives people the way it connects with people and brings people together [Applause] [Applause] you
