England’s 70 Museums and Libraries Get £33 Million Funding from UK Government

England’s museums and libraries, including Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Newcastle Libraries, and Dinosaur Isle, are getting over £33 million in government funding. This money will be used for repairs, updates, and digital improvements, helping these places serve their communities better and attract more visitors.

Highlights of the funding include:

  • Dinosaur Isle receives nearly £500,000 for roof repairs and better lighting.
  • Newcastle Libraries gets nearly £400,000 for a new reading space and more community facilities.
  • Yorkshire Sculpture Park is awarded over £250,000 to fix a historic bridge.

This funding is part of the government’s plan to support cultural spots nationwide. It aims to make these places more accessible and improve the experience for visitors.

The money comes from two main funds: the Museum Estate and Development Fund for museums and the Libraries Improvement Fund for libraries. This support is expected to help these institutions remain important community resources for years to come.
