How are European museums managing COVID-19?


NEMO, the Network of European Museum Organisations, represents the museum community of the Council of Europe member states .

Since its founding, in 1992, it promots the work of museums and their value to policy makers and provide museums with information, networking and opportunities for collaboration.
It includes museum networks as well as individual museums; currently it has more than 30,000 affiliated in 43 countries across Europe.

In this difficult time, NEMO is following the spread of COVID-19 closely and to better assist the European museum community, NEMO finds that it is important to gather and compile information of museums’ actions in regards to the coronavirus.

For this purpose, it created  a short survey and it is asking the European museum community to fill it out.
