More news on the future of the Lloyd George Museum

February 7, 2017 4:22 PM

LG MuseumThere are continuing fears that the Lloyd George Museum in Llanystumdwy may not be able to stay open once the extra money given by the Westminster government last year runs out.

Welsh Liberal Democrat leader and Ceredigion MP Mark Williams said: "The Lloyd George Museum is a great tourist attraction and has helped educate people from all over the UK on the enormous contribution Lloyd George made to Welsh and British politics. However, despite the lifeline given to the Lloyd George Museum last year, its future once again hangs in the balance.

"It is absolutely vital that we safeguard the future of the museum, and the Welsh Liberal Democrats reiterate the calls we made a year ago for the Lloyd George Museum to be brought into the National Museum for Wales. Lloyd George is a Welsh political giant, and we should continue to remember and celebrate his life.

"It would be a tragedy if the museum were lost."

Lloyd George Society chairman Professor Russell Deacon said: "If Gwynedd council is unable or unwilling to support the museum in the future then I believe the Welsh Government, either through Cadw or its National Museum Wales, should take over supporting the museum as a site of national and international historical importance."
