EXCITING PLANS FOR A MODERN MUSEUM 

"Blackpool Museum was originally going to be in the Horseshoe Theatre in the Winter Gardens. In July 2017 it was decided that the costs to develop the Museum there were too large. However, that was far from the end of the story. Behind the scenes, the team put together a Plan B for the museum."
