COVID-19 Impact on
NYS Museums Report
In April 2020, the Network of European Museum Organisations (NEMO) published its findings of a survey on the impact of COVID-19 on museums in Europe. The Museum Association of New York was given permission by NEMO to use their survey questions to generate a comparable dataset for New York Museums in order to convey the impact of this public health crisis on our sector.
COVID-19 Impact on NYS Museums
In June, the American Alliance of Museums released their COVID-19 Impact survey. 16% of museum directors that there is a high risk that their museums could close within 16 months without additional funding.
From July 29 to August 10, we collected information from 198 museums from all ten REDC regions to help us compare New York's numbers. In this report is an update on funding sources to NYS museums, the risk of museum closure in NYS compared to the nation, and an analysis of the Paycheck Protection Program to NYS museums.Click here to read our report.
