IMLS Works to Establish a National Museum Survey

IMLS, after consulting with scientific experts at the American Institutes for Research, is working on establishing a National Museum Survey (NMS) as part of the Federal Statistical System. The NMS will help inform IMLS initiatives and guide policymakers and practitioners in making decisions for supporting and managing museums. Data will be collected directly from museums to discover the scope and scale of their reach in the U.S. and what social, cultural, and economic roles they play in society.

Ten museum experts make up a steering committee that will provide “grounded guidance and feedback regarding field needs, existing research efforts, and technical feedback on the survey design and implementation. These members also present a bridge between IMLS and the entire museum sector and advise on messaging and outreach,” the press release states. After preliminary research, the pilot survey will launch in summer 2023.

For more information, read the press release.
