THE stunning underground gallery at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is nearer a cash windfall.
The gallery is in the final four of the contests for the UK's biggest arts prize.
It lines up against an historic steamship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the world's oldest medical collection and a collection of Roman, Viking and medieval treasures.
All have all been shortlisted for the UK's biggest arts prize.
The £100,000 Gulbenkian Prize is given to one museum or gallery in the UK each year.
The shortlisted sites are the Yorkshire Sculpture Park at West Bretton; Brunel's SS Great Britain in Bristol; The Collection: Art and Archaeology in Lincoln; and The Hunterian Museum in London.
The four were whittled down from a list of 10, which included the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea, Concorde at the Museum of Flight in Edinburgh and the new Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.
The creation of the £2.75m creation underground gallery has put the sculpture park on the list.
The gallery is tucked beneath the sloping lawns of the 18th-century Bothy Garden to protect the celebrated landscape above.
Judges praised the space, awash with light from a glazed concourse, as "an example of how a contemporary eco-friendly building can fit in and add to historic surroundings".
The chairman of the judges, scientist and broadcaster Lord Robert Winston, said: "Selecting only four for the shortlist was hard. But those chosen all show innovation, variety and excitement and each is devoted to a special area, but with wide interest.
"This remarkable shortlist shows that the museum world in Britain is vibrant and alive."
The winner will be announced on May 25 at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Last year's winner was the preserved coal mine Big Pit: National Mining Museum of Wales.
