Science Museums under threat: today's FT

The FT suggests this morning that one of the three regional science museums - Manchester (Science), Bradford (Media & Photography and York (Railways) - will close.

I have sent the following letter to the FT:

"Science as it is reflected in our UK museums cannot hold a candle to the Tate (two offerings in London plus St Ives and Liverpool), the V&A (London and Dundee) and the Imperial War Museum (London, Duxford and Salford).
 
Instead we have four independent "science" museums which somehow have failed to include Bletchley Park - a huge oversight. The real problem is that these four museums in London, Manchester, York and Bradford is its suffocating, overarching and anachronistic board of management such that each director of the four museums is hamstrung.
 
The solution is to allow the Science Museum to become the owners of the other three museums. We also need to add a new national computer science museum which might incorporate Bletchley Park. Afterall, we did give the world Babbage, Turing, Berners-Lee and Ive."
