Number of British Museum visitors in London, England 2008-2018 This statistic displays the number of visitors to the British Museum in London, England between 2008/09 and 2017/18. The British Museum in London attracted approximately 6.9 million visitors between April 2015 and March 2016, the highest recorded number of visitors over the period in consideration.
Compared to other government funded museums, the British Museum is one of the most visited museums in England. It ranks as the leading visitor attraction in London as well as leading attraction in the UK for number of visitors. International tourists account for around two thirds of visits, with the number of overseas visitors increasing over the years.

As a government sponsored museum, the British Museum receives funding from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and as part of their cultural policy, allows free general admission for all. Income from admissions is therefore relatively low, however the museum receives a large proportion of income through fundraising or charitable giving, such as donations from individuals, charities or private companies and through membership schemes. A breakdown of the British Museum’s income streams shows that commercial revenue accounts for a smaller proportion of income than Grant-in-aid funding received from the DCMS.
