Default What happened to the National Wireless Museum?

Folks,

I've still to discover what happened to the National Wireless Museum on the Isle of Wight. Does anyone have up to date information?

Rod Burman wrote a letter to Radio Bygones revealing that much of the equipment donated to the museum had been "discovered" as "100 foot long tunnels full of rotting equipment". Was any attempt made to recover any of this? Was any of it rare stuff?

I found a webpage with recent photos of "the National Wireless museum that closed some years ago" here. But no further explanation of what is actually going on there, or who now owns the surviving equipment.

I have no personal interest in the equipment in the photos (not my area), but I would like to know what went wrong with this organisation, with a view to avoiding the same fate for my own one. Anyone know any more?
