Entrance fees to national museums across the country were officially scrapped
on 1 December 2001 but the idea formed one of Tony Blair's 'New' Labour's first
In 1997, a number of museums, including the British Museum, said they were
considering charging visitors to permanent exhibitions in order to meet spiralling
costs which they have done.
The National Arts Collections Fund warned that unless more money was found
others would follow "like a falling house of cards" prompting widespread
fear that Free Entry into the country's national museums would become a thing
of the past.
Over 10 years later we are pleased to see that Free MUSEUM ENTRY is growing,
rather than shrinking!
Before Free admission, we used to spend between £4 for children and £6
for an adult.
The number of visitors virtually doubled in the first year after Free admissions
were introduced and has been sustained that year on year.
Average annual attendance each year before entry was made Free was around
This year we hope that this will at least break the half-million barrier.
In places like Manchester, which has some of the poorest neighbourhoods in
the country, they've really seen a noticeable increase in the diversity of museum
visitors as well.
