Charg­ing is a bad idea

RE: Peter­bor­ough Mu­seum may start to charge for ad­mis­sion, 15 De­cem­ber

I thought that the last govern­ment ruled that all such mu­se­ums would have free en­try. Can any­one con­firm this? I have to agree with oth­ers that charg­ing an en­trance fee will have a detri­men­tal knock-on ef­fect. The peo­ple in charge of the mu­seum must think more care­fully about charg­ing. If they go ahead, vis­i­tor numbers will drop dra­mat­i­cally. There is al­ready a con­stant drain on per­sonal in­come so an­other could close the mu­seum in weeks.
