Lincolnshire County Council to shut museums

Grantham Museum will be closed by March 2011, Lincolnshire County Council, in an effort to cut costs.

The closure comes as the council looks to cut £1 million from its culture budget over the next two years. As well as Grantham Museum, Stamford Museum and Church Farm Museum in Skegness will also be lost.

The county council have said that it is no longer viable to keep the museums open, due to the number of visitors the museums receive against their running costs.

We are adding these museums to Rescue’s map of heritage cuts, and the real effect they are having on your local heritage.
