weston park museum,millenium galleries etc why do they close @ 5pm.
that leaves saturday & sunday for all the workers and their children to do the visiting.
which means 50% of us can't be bothered to queue in traffic and round the attractions.
Cost, I should think. As a general rule, when people go shopping at 2am, they're buying stuff and the supermarket makes money. A museum that was open at 2am would have to raise its admission fees by a massive amount to cover the increased costs of being open at that time. Given that a lot of these places don't even HAVE admission fees, that's hardly an option.
