While that pretty much kills off the “wandering around the area and might pop in”, it does mean for the considerably larger number of people who make a special trip to the museum, they wont have to stand outside any more.
The museum will continue to be open Wed-Sun, and closed on Mon/Tues.
Although entry is free, they are asking for a suggested donation of £10.
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
