State of NYS Museums: 2020

Assessing the state of our museum field is more important than ever. MANY needs your help to quantify the ways in which our museums changed in 2020. MANY's 2019 State of NYS Museums Report issued a year ago will provide a valuable reference point to help measure those changes.

Please take our 2020 State of NYS Museums Survey. We will use your responses to create a tool for the field for advocacy, fundraising, and benchmarking.

We have extended the deadline to Friday, April 16.

This survey would be best answered by a staff or board member who has access to your year-end financial statements, and/or annual reports for 2019 and 2020.

It should take you approximately 30 minutes to answer the questions. If there is a question you can't answer, you may return to the survey at a later time, but you must use the same device and web browser.

You can preview the survey questions here.

If you need assistance in navigating the survey, please email info@nysmuseums.org


The survey report will be sent to those who complete the survey and MANY members before it is made available to the public later this year. We will maintain the highest level of confidentiality and will not share data connected to names of museums or museum professionals.

Submit your answers before 5 PM on April 16, and we will send you a code for a discounted individual MANY membership or a discounted registration for a MANY Fall 2021 Partnership Forum.
