Annual Museum Survey

We run this survey to predominantly collect quantitative data, which represents the audiences, workforce and financial operational context of Accreditation museums and those Working Towards Accreditation (WTA) across England.  This data is valuable for gaining an understanding of museums in their locality and in a regional and national context.  Analysis of the data can inform a benchmark for participant museums year on year and identify trends across the sector at a regional and national level.

We collect data from our regional museums each year from June onwards and all museums whom respond get a personalised calculation of the economic impact of their activities for that financial year, as well as insight into how their own operations compare within the region.

You can see the results from each year below, including regional and county breakdowns where possible.
