'I've looked at Optium Museum Acrylic from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's Optium Museum Acrylic's illusions I recall
I really don't know Optium Museum Acrylic at all'

(Thanks for putting this in my head, guys. Just new the first line; had to look up the rest. Happy Framing!) :)

Ted is correct, the sides are interchangeable on Optium Acrylic and Museum Optium Acrylic. Both sides have the same optical coatings, and the UV filter is integral to the chemistry of the plastic sheet.

Museum Glass has the same optical coatings on both sides, but the UV filtering must be applied as a coating on one side of the glass sheet.
