    I think I might start a petition, to have a Dam built at Shipley just south of the Station.

    This also affects MOSI Manchester and the Rail Museum in York. All threatened with closure to help keep London based Museums running allegedly.

    Though I really hope it doesn’t come to it, Manchester and York can afford to lose a museum. Bradford certainly can’t. Well worth supporting. Done.

    i wouldn’t say that, yes maybe a museum about tubular bandages but not the national railway museum and the museum of science and industry! 2 of the best days out in their respective cities, ditto bradford. not sure if a petition on the internet is the way forward tho

    Really. And where did you get that info-nugget from?

    unlikely theyll close, just be volunteer staff, and some redundancies, there is also the case for charging admission fees, but the overheads of charging usually wipe out the charge.

    Quite a few museums run with limited staff and lots of volunteers, jsut look at the preserved railways.

    Right. I’m definitely not voting conservative next time.

    Signed – they exhibited one of my pix a few years back so are clearly worth saving.

    If I had to choose one of the three to go it would be the Media museum. Its a bit crap in comparison to the others, and I live in Bradford.

    A Thatcher museum though would be a travesty.

    Read this… then gather your pitch forks.

    Perhaps you are accidentally missing the point that the Thatcher museum will be paid for and run with private funds – conservatives being rather less inclined to spaff other people’s money around like drunken sailors on shore leave.

    Not missing the point at all.

    While the country is on its arse somebody, with the blessing of our leader, is prepared to spunk £15,000,000 on a museum to Thatcher, and at the same time these places that inspire and are held in awe by our kids are under threat.

    Presumably if these places were actually worth saving they’d be financially viable from ticket sales?
