Experience Barnsley.

EXPERIENCE Barnsley is less than a year old and is already in the running for a top award.


It  is celebrating after making the longlist for the 2014 Telegraph Family Friendly Museum Award.

Britain's biggest museum award, is judged by families - more than 800 grandparents, aunties, uncles, parents and children have submitted their favourite sites to visit.

The news comes as the museum and discovery centre prepares to mark its first birthday at the end of the week, already attracting more than 130,000 visitors since it opened.

The museum, run by Barnsley Council, is one of 20 on the long list.
