Holidaymakers urged to visit England's free museums
30 Dec 2011

Travellers planning to book flights and hotels for a break in England in the near future have been encouraged to make the most of the sights and experiences on offer at free museums across the country.

Laura Smith, destination public relations manager at VisitEngland, said the wealth of free attractions available makes a domestic getaway a good option for people hoping to go away without spending too much money after Christmas.

She highlighted a number of sites in some major cities that do not ask visitors to pay for entry.

'From the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester to the Merseyside Maritime Museum and London's Imperial War Museum, England has world-class interactive museums for families - plus all of these are absolutely free,' said Ms Smith.

One of London's most popular free attractions, the Science Museum, is currently hosting a display presented by Electroboutique - an art production company comprising Russian artists Alexei Shulgin and Aristarkh Chernyshev - that includes a series of works created over the past seven years.
