How were museums doing in Europe in 2021?

It is the fourth year in a row, since 2018, the European Museum Academy, by the support of country representatives, produced the following more subjective inside views about how museums were doing and what the museums experienced as their challenges, be it political, financial, organisational etc. in 2021.

It is easier to find statistical information on museums produced for specific research projects and in continuous statistical series from governments, the European Union, the Council of Europe and even UNESCO.

But what is going on beneath the numbers?

We would like to thank all our dedicated representatives across Europe who make it possible for our independent network to present this report.
