Fleetwood Museum Events and Activities 2016
Fleetwood Museum is closing on 30th September 2016.
Lancashire County Council is withdrawing funding for the museum and is currently looking in to a community group taking over the running of the museum. Fleetwood Museum Trust and Fleetwood Town Council are in negotiations with Lancashire County Council in this respect and are hoping to re-open the museum for the new season on 1st April 2017.
