Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon threatened with closure

29 November 2013 Last updated at 11:15 GMT

The Cromwell Museum in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire could fall victim to budget cuts as the county council tries to save £149m over the next five years.

The museum, once the school where Oliver Cromwell was educated, attracts about 13,000 visitors a year with annual running costs of £20,000.

Now the council says it will close in 2018 unless another group takes over management and funding.

Campaigners to keep it open say the museum gives value for money.

Stuart Ratcliffe reports.
