Rescue have submitted a response to the Government’s “Review of Museums in England”((https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/review-of-museums-in-england)), described thus:
The Museums Review will consider how museums and galleries across England can thrive and become even more inclusive. The Review will look at how the sector operates, the challenges it faces and the role of government-sponsored museums.
Rescue have highlighted the crisis over the storage of archaeological archives, as well as threats to professional curatorial expertise evident right across the sector, as well as the ongoing funding pressures and the deleterious effects this is having on the aspiration of museums to make heritage accessible to all.
