Should Britain stop building museums?
Feb 20, 2018, 11:44
I don't know whether this is an appropriate forum topic for TMA ... Perhaps.

"A recent government report says that Britain should stop building new museums and focus on the ones it already has. But with limited public funding available, how far can existing museums diversify and grow?"

A thought provoking article from Alistair Brown, Policy Officer at the Museums Association.

I live in a town with a great archaeological heritage as well as one of the best collections of 20th century art in the country. Problem is its current museum and art gallery is tiny so most of the collection is in storage. There is currently a bid being put forward to HLF for a state of the art new building as opposed to another faction who want to utilise an existing Victorian 'heritage' building. I think I'm probably in the latter.
