The Horniman Museum has announced it has been nominated for the Gulbenkian Prize 2007.

You can read about all the nominees and *vote* at http://www.24hourmuseum.org.uk/nwh/ART43382.html

Obviously you should vote for the museum that you think is best and most deserving of the 100,000 prize, but the more Forest Hill residents who vote the better!

Steve Bullock, Mayor of Lewisham, wants residents to join him in helping Horniman Museum win a prestigious 100,000 art prize.

I have been to the site several times but never worked out how/where you can vote? Help!

Doh! I found it this time, although I couldhave sworn the links weren't there last time I tried.

If, like me you could not find it, you click on a link about four fifths of the way down the page on:
http://www.24hourmuseum.org.uk/nwh/ART43382.html

and it creates an email for you to send with your vote.

Went with my relations from Bedford. They were very impressed with the Aquarium and Music Gallery.
thought the charge for the special Walking With Beasts ( about GBP 12.00 for family ticket ) a bit excessive. I have been in a previous pay exhibition before and the area is very small and in my opinion not worth it.

It appears that Horniman did not make it to the shortlist of four. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6524697.stm

But it was up against some heavyweight museums including a royal palace in Kew, Kelvingrove in Glasgow which has recently had a 35m restoration, and Weston Park Museum which had 19m spent. In contrast the aquarium in Horniman cost just 1m.
