Mary Rose misses out

Portsmouth police warn of ‘fake friends’ targeting the disabled

Have your say

AN open-air gallery filled with work by artists including Henry Moore has beaten the Mary Rose Museum to be named Museum of the Year.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield, was hailed by judges as a ‘truly outstanding museum with a bold artistic vision’.

It beat the Portsmouth venue and others, including Tate Britain, to the £100,000 prize, formally known as The Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year, at a ceremony in London.
