What "superb tourist and cultural asset" is steadily losing money?

"The museum is a superb tourist and cultural asset, both in terms of the permanent exhibition and the temporary presentations as many visiting schoolchildren and elderly people would agree"
What museum is Jacques Vignal, a senior county councillor, talking about? The Musée Jacques Chirac, bien sûr.
A state-funded museum built to display gifts showered on President Jacques Chirac by foreign dignitaries has gone almost three times over budget and is steadily losing money as admission figures slump.
