Share of global museums before and after COVID-19 in 2020, by average visitor count

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, several museums worldwide had to close to the public for long periods, as governments put in place lockdowns and strict safety regulations to contain the health crisis. According to a November 2020 study, about 46 percent of surveyed museums across the globe reported on average less than five thousand visitors between January and October 2020. As of the same period, only 0.4 percent of the survey sample recorded more than one million visitors, whereas 5.4 percent of museums involved in the study recorded more than one million visitors before 2020.
