A village museum in Sussex will compete with the new Mary Rose exhibition hall in Portsmouth, as well as Tate Britain, to be named the Museum of the Year.
The Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft reopened last September and could win an Art Fund prize worth £100,000.
The result will be announced on July 9 and we spoke to director Hilary Williams about the museum.
