New Data About the Value of Museums

Two new groundbreaking reports from the American Alliance of Museums reveal indisputable evidence that museums contribute more to the United States economy than previously thought and have widespread public support that transcends political affiliations and geographic locations.

The first study, Museums as Economic Engines, reveals that museums support 726,000 jobs in the United States, and directly employ 372,100 people--more than double that of the professional sports industry. 

The second report, Museums & Public Opinion, examines the opinions of Americans concerning museums and shows 96 percent would approve of elected officials who act to support museums, including maintaining or increasing federal funding.
