From petition creator Jorge Walsh: Ed Vaizey declared that budget cuts would not affect the Science Museum Group and that closure of any of the museums in jeopardy would not happen. Success!

The Museum of Science and Industry is one of the most important educational facilities in the country, educating young and old on the industrial and scientific changes to the world.

Manchester is a city at the heart of the Industrial Revolution and to close down a museum about the changes brought about in this great city would be a ridiculous idea. I, like many people from many generations, have visited the MOSI and have been engaged in the history of science and industry, both locally in Manchester and it's greater impact on the world.

The proposal to close the MOSI, as well as the possibility of closing the National Media Museum in Bradford or the National Rail Museum in York, would be depriving younger (and older) generations access to education facilites so vital to our understanding of technological, scientific and cultural changes within Britain. 

MoSI is an engaging place to learn about the role of the North in the Industrial and Scientific changes to the world and to lose it would be a great, great shame.

      Because this is a vital northern link and there is rarely a similar proposal for anywhere in London. i thought the Chancellor represented a northern constituency

      The children I work with all love this place and it is one of few places children with Special Needs can gain a lot from visiting due to the interactive things that are available.
