The IMLS National Study on the
Use of Museums and the Internet
Museums have long been sources of learning, recreation and information for personal, family, educational and workplace purposes. However, the Internet and other technologies have become an increasingly used source of information that some believe will largely replace their physical counterparts. On the other hand, some have speculated that the Internet and related technologies and services will actually enhance and increase museum use.
Until now, there has been no solid evidence to support either assertion particularly considering the wide range in types of museums. Researchers have completed the “Institute of Museums and Library Services National Study on the Use of Museums and the Internet,” a study that delves into the use of museums and the Internet. The study concludes that “the amount of use of the Internet is positively correlated with the number of in-person visits to museums.”

The number of virtual museum exhibit visits to an online museum is positively correlated with the number of in-person visits to museums in general. In-person visitors to museum exhibits who also visit museum exhibits on demand have a more positive trend in visiting more often than those who visit in-person only.
