Crowdfunding is stepping in to finance under-funded museums in crisis after 24% of UK museums reported a decrease in public income.
WIRED reports the Houston Space Centre launched a Kickstarter campaign to renovate NASA’s Apollo Mission Control Centre. In the UK, London's Science Museum used Kickstarter to raise £51,813 to rebuild Eric, Britain’s oldest robot.
Crowdfunding has a strong track record of raising money from passionate fans and supporters. More museums will follow.
