Popularity of UK museums surges
The Daily Mail reports that "the popularity of Britain's museums soar as 42 million visit each year." According to a new report, "43 per cent of the population visited a museum or gallery at least once in the last year." The paper says that "museum and gallery attendance exceeds the number of people who watch Premiership and league football and is 50 per cent higher than theatre visits to the West End."
One new museum receiving brilliant reviews is the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum in Bristol.
