Grantham Museum is to open its doors on Wednesday and invite people in to watch the funeral of Baroness Thatcher,

The museum, usually closed on Wednesdays, will open to give people the chance to come in and witness the funeral together on a big screen.

The museum has also brought some new Margaret Thatcher artefacts out of storage including her blue suit and personal artefacts relating to her younger life.

Chairman of Grantham Museum Helen Goral said: “It will give people the chance to watch the funeral, sign the condolence book and view the latest exhibits.”

There will be no charge for entry on Wednesday although people will be encouraged to make a small donation to cover the cost of hosting the event. All are welcome.
