The 2020 Annual Museum Survey has now launched across England

FAO: Museums in the Accreditation scheme (including officially working towards).

This year the survey will be more important than ever as we seek to gain insights of the impacts of the pandemic. The 2020 survey will gather data from 1st April 2019 – 31st March 2020 and provide an important baseline from which the impact of closure and the gradual phased reopening of museums across 2020-21 can be better understood. 

Museums who participated last year should have received an email inviting them to do so again, on Friday 24 July. If you did not receive this email, please check your junk folders first, then get in touch with if you still haven’t received it.

Museums who were not eligible last year, but are this year, will receive their invitations to register for the survey shortly. The deadline to register is 20 August 2020.

South West Museum Development have created a support page with FAQs on their website.

SURVEY DEADLINE: 18 October 2020.

Thank you for participating in this survey.

Please note that paper copies are not being accepted this year and data has to be entered online.
