World Museum surviving during the coronavirus lockdown

Museums are the places that hold the stories of history and proof of past within themselves. Such places are on the verge of closing as they are out of money to operate anymore. Sharon Heal, the Museums Association director, says that smaller museums are safe to open at the right time to make up the money to go on, and not shut down. She also mentions that a set of rules would be followed as a preventive measure, such as keeping a distance of 2 meters and also allowing a certain number of people to enter at a time and not in groups.

As summer plays an important period as more people come into museums, it is time for major income for all museums, and this time it would help the smaller museums to use it to buy their needful, expenditures, and requirements. The museums that don’t come under the Welsh Government don’t get grants, so their existence is at stake, which is 75% of the small museums during the 12 weeks of summer. This shows how much there is a need for them to open a least for this short period.

Swansea Bus Museum is one such museum that is on the verge of closing, and what’s worse is they couldn’t open even before the pandemic in the month of January and February due to storms that hit. The museum had no savings, and all that came was always used up, and unfortunately, last year, they spent all that they had on upgrading the standards of the buses, which they could let out for rent in use of weddings and proms.

One such person is Adrian Hughes, an owner also one and only employee also shared the benefit from which he could support himself somehow but was also victimized to the sudden pandemic outbreak. His Llandudno’s Home Front Museum had its roles during world war two. This is also one among the museums to open at least for about six weeks, or else all the collects for the past 35 years would sink.
