Supplementary notes

The source specifies that the estimated number of museums is based on: “the Report on the implementation of the 2015 UNESCO Recommendation on Museums and Collections (figures collected by the OCLC (Online Computer Library Center), based on the Museums of the World directory published by Saur, and figures from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in Washington, D.C., for American museums). These statistics have been amended from those provided by the 56 Member States for the monitoring of the Recommendation (in 2019), by data provided in the first UNESCO survey of museums and COVID, conducted in April 2020 by 45 UNESCO field offices, and by the present survey of Member States in March 2021”.
