According to the local press the place is shutting down, it was visited by prince Charles but what we can understand the place will be closing down due to lack of funds

The visitor centre is located at Burnley Wharf and Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Run by very friendly and knowledgeable volunteers who are happy to answer any question. Do drop in when you are in the area and it's free. You won't be disappointed.

again, a neat place to visit. however, I was amused to hear it described as a 'work in progress' as that is exactly what I was told it was the last time I was here in 1979.
