The future of historic attractions has been plunged into doubt after a council announced £98 million worth of cuts.
Iconic attractions in Wolverhampton, including Bantock House Museum, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the City Archives could all be hit as part of plans to save millions.
Fresh details can today be revealed about the full extents of the cuts.
A report will be drawn up on Bantock House Museum as the city council looks to secure Heritage Lottery Funding for the site.
But the authority has admitted that the level of service there relies on funding, income and securing volunteers.
The City Archives would also only open for 21 hours a week over three and a half days in a bid to save £47,000, under the proposals.
It is currently open five days a week for a total of 33 hours a week.
Opening days at Wolverhampton Art Gallery will also be cut as the gallery is set to close on Mondays.
From 2017 to 2018, it is expected the Lichfield Street venue will only open from Tuesdays to Saturdays, while seven jobs are also at risk.
This will help save £252,000 over the next five years.
