Horniman Museum SE23

Location: UK » London » SE

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) will stop funding the Horniman Museum in London from 2015.

Currently DCMS provides around 85 percent of the museum’s overall funding - more than £4m a year. The Department insists it will help the museum secure alternative sources of funding, and will not cut it adrift should this funding not materialise.

The Horniman holds a world-renowned collection of artefacts from natural history, anthropology and music.
