RAMM crowned ‘Museum of the Year’

29/06/2012

Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) has seized the £100,000 Art Fund Prize for its stunning £24 million transformation.

Praised by the judges for its ‘ambition and imagination’, the museum has dramatically reinterpreted its display of over a million fascinating objects – from gemstones and taxidermy to medieval coins and modern art. Through its innovative curatorial approach the new museum has changed the way audiences interact with and understand its collection.

Established in memory of Queen Victoria’s husband in 1868, the museum’s founding principles were based on the cultural ideals of the Prince Regent, who aimed to bring art and science, design and technology together into one universal vision. In the course of its 144-year history the museum has pursued these values by amassing over a million objects in an extremely wide array of fields. The new museum offers a dramatically reinterpreted display of the museum’s collection, one which both reveals a range stories about the local region and the wider world, and the history and character of this unique museum itself.

The design for the new museum was by Ralph Appelbaum Associates, and working with fit-out contractors, The Benbow Group we designed almost 40 bespoke showcases to house the museum’s vast collection.
