Contribute to Covid-19 follow-up survey

Six months after its first study on the impact of Covid-19 on the European museum sector, NEMO has published a follow-up survey. It is time to map where museums in Europe stand and how they deal with the issues that emerged during the pandemic.

The second Covid study of NEMO will present an in-depth evaluation of: 

  • Income losses, its consequences and mitigation,  
  • Development of digital museum offers, and  
  • Questions related to a “new normal”, including the re-assessment of museum priorities and success criteria.  
  • Staff and visitor safety during the pandemic  

The results will feed into a new set of recommendations and will guide NEMO in determining which policies and measures should be put forward at European level.

As the survey is published, new museum closures are announced. It is more important than ever to unite and work together to help make museums during the crisis. Please help NEMO and your museum colleagues worldwide by participating in the survey and sharing it with your contacts.

Please complete it by Friday 20 November 2020.

Map of museum closures

Map of Europe.

It's with heavy hearts that we turn our map of museum re-openings to a map of second closures. We are concerned about the developments and ask the museum community to keep us updated about the situation in their country. The mapping will serve as the basis of a shared advocacy initiative to #KeepMuseumsOpen.

So far we have been reached with information about museums closing in Ireland, France, Slovenia, Switzerland, Sweden, Romania, Belgium and Germany.

Read our statement on refraining from drastically closing museums. Museums help people stay strong during the pandemic and contribute to their well-being and mental health.

Continue the conversation about museums and the pandemic at NEMO's European Museum Conference - Museums making sense. Apart from exploring how museums help people make sense of complicated matters, we will exchange experiences and ideas in small discussion groups on topics connected to Covid-19.
