This is in response to a query on a Facebook page

As has clearly been stated on official Museum sites before - there is NO TRUTH to any of the rumours that have been made the museum collection is being broken up and sold to America - the museum collection is in trust and cannot be broken up at all. Graham is making plans for the safe transition of the museum to its next owner, whoever that may be, when he retires in a few year's time. Whilst we can understand people's concern for the future of the museum we would ask that you contact the museum directly on 01840250111 or if you have any specific queries!!!
