The Runners & Riders for Museum of the Year

Museum of the Year

Mather & Co designed National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art is nominated for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2017

The Art Fund Museum of the Year is the world’s biggest museum prize, and the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art at Newmarket, designed by Mather & Co and opened last year has been shortlisted in 2017.

The winner’s prize is £100,000, whilst the other finalists will receive £10,000 in recognition of their achievements. The winner will be crowned at an award ceremony held at the British Museum on July 5, 2017.

Newmarket is widely recognised as the international home of horseracing, and the world class attraction brings together the National Horseracing Museum and the British Sporting Art Trust and the Retraining of Racehorses Charity on one site to share the global history of the sport and to bring a nationally significant collection to life.
