Failing Belfast Museum Scores Big Money

“Five days after being criticised for poor management, the Ulster Museum in Belfast has received its largest ever grant from the [UK’s] Heritage Lottery Fund. Last week the Public Accounts Committee at Westminster accused the museum’s officials of ‘profound deficiencies in custodianship’ and found 90 per cent of the museum’s collection was stored out of public view. But yesterday £4,527,000 was handed over to rejuvenate one of Northern Ireland’s best-known landmarks.”
