Cultural Tourism

With the remarkable variety of cultural heritage across Europe, the onset of globalisation offers significant opportunities for economic growth. A large part of that heritage is represented in the collections of European museums, which draw tourists from across Europe and around the world. The huge influx of tourists that museums attract is one of their most important contributions to local economies, and is becoming a growing industry in Europe at large.
