Museums 'boosted by staycation' (UK)





UK museums and art galleries have seen a rise in visitor numbers due to the recession but face financial worries, a new study has revealed.

Two-thirds of cultural institutions reported a rise in admissions during the summer, according to The Art Fund.

But at least a quarter reported having to deal with public funding cuts, rising running costs and heavier reliance on voluntary staff.

The survey encompassed 225 museums, including the London's V&A and Tate.
