Art Fund Museum of the Year 2018
Brooklands Museum is a finalist for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2018, the biggest museum prize in the world.
Supported by Art Fund, the Museum of the Year Award seeks out and celebrates innovation and exceptional achievement in museums and galleries across the UK. Brooklands’ nomination marks the culmination of one of the Museum’s most important periods in its 27-year history, with a spectacular transformation of the site in 2017 thanks to the Brooklands Aircraft Factory and Race Track Revival project.
What are we doing to celebrate our nomination?To celebrate being nominated for the Art Fund Museum of the Year Award 2018, we are taking our most iconic exhibit, the world-record breaking 1933 24ltr Napier-Railton out and about to showcase it at Surrey’s most iconic locations and venues.
