How do museums deal with the problems that emerged during the pandemic?

Share

Six months ago, NEMO (the Network of European Museum Organisations) published a study on the impact of Covid-19 on the European museum sector.

In recent weeks we are experiencing a second wave of museum closures across Europe and NEMO started to update the map of re-openings with dates and information concerning second closures.

After this first study on the impact of Covid-19 on the European museum sector, NEMO has published a follow-up survey to map the status quo and check in with the museums on how they deal with the issues that emerged during the pandemic.

The second Covid study of NEMO will present an in-depth evaluation of:

  • Income losses, its consequences and mitigation.
  • Development of digital museum offers.
  • Questions related to a “new normal”, including the re-assessment of museum priorities and success criteria.
  • Staff and visitor safety during the pandemic.

Participation in this survey will help identify the policies and measures to be proposed at European level.

The link to the survey is here  and responses are accepted until Friday 20 November 2020.
