Was it not the Bliar regime that scrapped admission charges for many museums?
Yes i think it was.
Charges to many of londons finest museums effectively a gift of la thatch, a philistine and so many other awful things. So i stopped going, and only returned when they were free again.
As i recall the british museum was the only major museum that maintained free admission.
More glory to them.
You mean you started going again when everyone else paid towards your entrance fee even though most of them didn't want to visit?
My favourite museum is the British Museum. Endlessly fascinating. Pity it is in London at one end of the island. I think it should be moved to a more central location, perhaps Birmingham, to make access easier for more people in the midlands,and the north. If it was there I'd visit more often from my home in suburban Cheshire.
