The Puget Sound is home to plenty of great museums, but the price of admission can sometimes keep potential visitors away. This weekend, though, the Smithsonian is helping cover the cost with Museum Day Live!
The Museum of London (MoL) has confirmed that it will make 17 posts redundant in order to address a deficit to its operating budget.
The museum needs to reduce its budget by £1m before April 2014 and said that shrinking its workforce was the only realistic way to cut year-on-year fixed costs.
The redundancies will hit a range of functions and levels across the organisation. The museum said it plans to axe all of its dedicated oral historian posts and focus on “digital collecting”.
MoL will also cut its specialist community collaboration team and plans to embed community work throughout the organisation rather than in a specific department.
A spokesman from MoL said: “Our approach to community collaboration and inclusion, and to collecting oral history is changing.
"Community work will be embedded in how we work across the organisation rather than a delivered through a specialist team. A new approach to community work will be developed within the context of our strategic plan and audience development strategy.
“With regards to oral history, due to pressures on its resources the museum has decided at this point to focus on digital collecting and move away from direct life stories recording. Therefore the delivery of the digitised oral history collection will be added to the responsibilities of the digital curator.”
