Personally speaking......

I think something should have been done with the Way We Were Museum, many years ago, the museum had it's day in the mid 1980's when it had a novel concept and won awards and was on the telly a lot, but that was nearly a quarter of a century ago and in the first 10 years it was open whenever you drove along Pottery Road or Wallgate during the day, you would see plenty of tourists milling around the pier complex and coaches would be dropping off in the layby with kids dressed up in period costume, ready to be terrorised in the “schoolroom”

But I noticed in the last few years that the complex was open, that you hardly seemed to see any visitors there and I believe that it had just not evolved over the years, with new exhibits and attractions, it had become stale and no doubt the managers of the complex would have said that the Council would not give them the money to bring in new things, but I suppose it is a vicious circle, less visitors = less money coming in and less money available for new projects and more money required from the Council to keep the place going, the same thing is happening with Wigan Market and that will close eventually
