Renaissance museums performance indicators

The Renaissance data collection was a quarterly return of data from each site participating in the Renaissance in the Regions programme, which ran until April 2012. The data returns contained information on numbers of: visits; priority group visits; child visits; website visits; school visits; higher education visits; adult and child on-site participation; and outreach activity.

The data returns supported the programme management and monitoring and form the basis of the Renaissance museums performance indicator statistical series. The data collection manual contains definitions of all the variables collected.

From 1 October 2011 the annual and quarterly reports have been published on the Arts Council website. You can find previous quarterly reports here.

Renaissance Exit Survey

The Renaissance Exit Survey is a museum visitor exit survey commissioned to measure the impact of Renaissance funding. The 2011-12 was the final year of the Renaissance Exit Survey.

The survey questionnaire is designed to measure visitor profile, museum visiting patterns and frequency, rating of the visit, and influences on the decision to visit.

Narrative reports exploring the 2010-11 and 2011-12 survey results and trends at national level were commissioned by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council and are now available to download.
