The Museum of Lancashire in Stanley Street closes on the 30th September except for school visits. Negotiations are underway with a group who could re-open it in the new year.
Other Lancashire County Council operated museums in a similar situation are Fleetwood Museum, Queen Street Mill Burnley, Helmshore Cotton Museum, Lancaster Judges Lodgings. We’ve been to all these and they’re all very good. They’re all in areas that need tourist attractions and jobs.
Our website contains reports on visits to them all, except our visit to the Judges Lodgings.
