Please sign this petition to save the Walsall Museum.

For the sake of saving £70,000 Walsall Council are proposing to close the Walsall Museum with no guarantees that the museum will be incorporated elsewhere.

Walsall's heritage will be flushed away, the costumes and many items of our history will rot away in a storage depot, the industries and the lives of those people who worked in them lost forever, the cultural, scientific and artistic identity of our past thrown away.

When I was a kid I used to love the school trips to local museums, it sparked my interest in history, being able to get close up to the artifacts of the past, I want the kids of tomorrow to be able to enjoy the experience I had, not to be told Walsall has 'no museum'.

    This is ridiculous, the savings are miniscule and far outweighed by the benefits of the museum.
