Museums as Travel Destinations Nationally: There are approximately 850 million visits each year to American museums, more than the attendance for all major league sporting events and theme parks combined (483 million in 2011). Museums also receive an additional 550 million plus online visits a year just from adults, a number that continues to grow.
In determining America’s Best Cities, Businessweek.com placed the greatest weight on “leisure amenities [including density of museums], followed by educational metrics and economic metrics…then crime and air quality.” Businessweek.com
What it Means to the Tourism Market: Seventy-eight percent of all U.S. leisure travelers participate in cultural or heritage activities such as visiting museums. These travelers spend 63 percent more on average than other leisure travelers.
What it Means for New York: In Spring of 2015, the Museums Association of New York, in partnership with the NYS Education Department, commissioned a study by the Cultural Data Project (CDP) of the funding, expenditures, staffing, and other data measures to better understand Museums in the State of New York. Data for the study are available for 246 Museums and related organizations in the state. Calculations are based on data for the Most Recent Fiscal Year available for each organization, from FY2011 forward.
