The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) reports that more than 1,600 people responded to the governments call for evidence in its first review of the museum sector in over a decade.
Launched in September 2016, the review will give a better understanding of how the museum sector can be supported by the government. The online survey took evidence from industry experts, museums, charities, funding bodies and the public. The evidence will now be analysed for the next stage of the review.
Lead reviewer Neil Mendoza, a non-executive director of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, said "I am delighted so many people have contributed to this call for evidence. Their extensive knowledge and experience have been invaluable to us and will enable us to make insightful and practical recommendations for the benefit of the whole sector."
