The Annual Museum Survey 2021 regional report published

February 17, 2022

The Annual Museum Survey 2021 regional report reveals the far-reaching impact of the pandemic on museums and their audiences, finances and workforce. It highlights the significant differences in how this impact has been felt across the sector, depending on key factors such as a museum’s region, or whether it is based in an urban or rural setting.

Operating since 2018, The Annual Museum Survey 2021 compares data with previous years to understand the depth of this impact and the pressures it has placed on the museum sector’s paid and volunteer workforce.
