Organizers said the nominees reflect the museum’s “creativity and resilience” and their focus on “connecting the next generation of audiences in innovative ways.”

Art Fund Director Jenny Waldman said: “The plethora of applications to be the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2022 shows the creativity and resilience of museums across the country despite the enormous challenges of the past two years.

“The five brilliant finalists are all museums on a mission tackling important issues today – from combating the climate emergency to improving literacy or exploring migration – and reaching out to diverse communities as they do so.
