The Impact of Cuts on UK Museums is the title of a report published by the Museums Association. It documents the extent of financial cuts occurring in local authority funded museums and the negative impact this has had on their programme of activities, opening hours and staff levels. These are short-term repercussions, but what will the long-term legacy of this be? Can the sector recover? What strategies might be adopted to deal with this radically changing landscape?

Even a parasite like me should be permitted to feed at the banquet of knowledge
Note All parasitoids are parasites, but not all parasites are parasitoids

And you live off me
And the whole world
Lives off everybody
See we gotta be exploited
By somebody, by somebody, by somebody
