London Transport Museum in finals for Art Fund Prize

The recently renovated London Transport Museum is among ten museums and galleries that have been included in the long list for
The Art Fund Prize for museums and galleries (formerly The Gulbenkian Prize).

70' Tube Fashion Victims - London Transport Museum by the sizemore mccabe project

The prize of £100,000 will be awarded to the museum or gallery whose project demonstrates the most originality, imagination and excellence.

You have a chance to vote for the LT Museum or your favourite from the list.

Apparently, your vote won't influence the final outcome of who wins the Prize but this 24 Hour Museum People's Vote is said to be "a good barometer of how you feel about your favourite museums and galleries - and we promise to keep the judges informed of how the voting goes".

Even before I heard about this Jane Findlay, the Community Curator at the museum, very kindly sent me some tickets to take some Tube friendly Flickr photographers & bloggers along to see the exhibits. We're going in a week or so and will no doubt come away with our views & pictures of the Museum, so that may help you with your decision.

There's also a London Transport Museum Flickr Group where you can add your own pictures of the Museum & comment on others.
