Museum of the Year shortlist: The MAC, Belfast

The Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year 2015 will be awarded on 1 July.

The prize celebrates the best museums and galleries across the UK.

BBC News visited each museum on the shortlist.

The MAC (Metropolitan Arts Centre) opened in 2012 in Belfast, and has established itself as Northern Ireland's leading contemporary arts venue.

The MAC has only one permanent art work, and uses its gallery space for a series of exhibitions.

Through the MAC's young curator programme, both local talent and established international artists now have a place to show their works in Belfast.
