"One hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War, the Imperial War Museum is under threat.
The Museum is facing an annual deficit of £4m because of cuts in government funding.
It has drawn up proposals to:
• close its unique library and dispose of the majority of its collection
• cut important education services
• cut 60-80 jobs
• close the widely emulated ‘Explore History’ facility in London.
The Museum’s library gives ordinary people access to research materials on all aspects of British and Commonwealth involvement in conflict since 1914".
The petition requests a review/reverse of the governments funding for the museum...

Personally I wonder how much help it would be to also start charging for entrance.... it's a superb museum, and entry is currently free (except to any special exhibitions)
