Chance to sign Margaret Thatcher condolence book extended for another month

Have your say

Grantham Museum has announced it is to keep its Margaret Thatcher book of condolence open until the end of May due to the “unprecedented demand”.

Museum chairman Helen Goral said: “We have had calls from people nationwide expressing their concern at not being able to visit Grantham immediately to sign the book, and we want to give people every available opportunity.

“Whilst we had originally planned to close the book following Baroness Thatcher’s funeral, the feedback has been such that we understand the need to keep it open all the while people want to make the trip to pay their respects.

“The condolence book will form part of a future exhibition for visitors to read the tributes and the more comprehensive we can make it the better.”

Grantham Museum is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

Along with the new and existing Margaret Thatcher exhibits, we are also proud to be launching an exhibition in May to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Dam Busters.
