Edinburgh Evening News had a online article saying that the Museum opposed the move to Newbridge, which is true but not very well informed as you can see from the comments at the end of our page:
Can I quash any rumours about museum moving to Newbridge Edinburgh Evening News got that bit wrong, Clerical staff are moving to Newbridge, At no point has anyone said museum is moving
Alison Johnstone Green MSP for Lothians region is quoted in the Evening News as saying:
Our city has a proud history of setting up the world’s first municipal fire service, and we should do our best to showcase this history, not hide it away in the outskirts of Edinburgh.

So there are things going on to raise awareness that Musuem maybe closing so show your support – there’s still time to sign the petition too!
