Save the Museum of Lancashire

The Museum of Lancashire in Preston is a special place to tell stories of old Lancashire and to preserve some of the county's heritage.

It has recently been overhauled and updated and occupies a Grade 2 listed building near the centre of Preston.

Heritage is a vital part of all of our lives and we owe it to our children and grandchildren to look after what we have - not just the environment and the natural world, although they are important enough - but how mankind has grown, how we thought, how we acted, what we wrote and drew, how we made sense of the world around us, our growth as individuals and as communities.

Once a museum or library has closed, it is most likely lost forever. Re-opening will be an extremely unlikely event.

Please support this petition to preserve this small but essential part of our heritage.
