The Newcastle Herald reported yesterday that while the plan to charge entry to the Newcastle Museum has been shelved by Newcastle City, it is likely that an entry fee could be introduced in the future.
In the article titled Newcastle Liberal councillor crosses floor against museum fees The Herald said;
A BATTLE to maintain free entry to Newcastle’s museum and art gallery was lost last night, but the war appears far from over.
Newcastle council, in adopting a new fee schedule for the next financial year, agreed to temporarily shelve a decision on introducing a $5 adult entry fee to the art gallery and museum until a proper fee structure could be determined.
