Exhibition Evaluation Surveys

This from Marian Steinberrg, Director, Visitors Research, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG): Lynda, The folk at Environmetrics say that the Australian Museum, National Gallery of Australia and the National Library and Australian Museum use a standard core structure for exhibition evaluation surveys. Would it be possible to get a copy?

Hi Marian. Several years ago the Evaluation and Visitor Research Special Interest Group of Museums Australia (phew – there's a mouthful!) undertook a study to look at standardising our questions, mostly in the areas of demographics. You can find the reports on the EVRSIG website. Regarding exhibition evaluation, there is an information sheet on my website about exhibition evaluation (scroll down to the Methods section. The recent post I wrote about Beginning Audience Research may also help.

Feel free to share your experiences with us, especially as TMAG is going into a redevelopment phase as I understand it?
