Annual Museum Survey 2020 Results

The Annual Museum Survey is an annual survey for all Accredited or Working towards Accreditation museums across England. It is delivered by MD England and managed by South West Museum Development.

In 2019/20 the survey was more important than ever as we sought to gain insights of the impacts of the pandemic.  The 2020 survey gathered data from 1st April 2019 – 31st March 2020 and provides an important baseline from which the impact of closure and the gradual phased reopening of museums across 2020-21 can be better understood.

Take a look at the 2020 results below, both for the region and where possible for a county.
