Are you a heritage organization trying to recover from the impact of COVID-19? Or a frequent visitor to local museums who can provide feedback on your experience? Help our partners by taking a survey to support their strategic planning efforts.
The Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) and the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA) want to hear from organizations doing historical, natural and cultural heritage-related work around the state. To date, how has your organization been impacted by COVID-19 and the resulting changes to the economy and daily life? This information will help update their understanding of how partner organizations across the state continue to be affected and, potentially, identify how they can help. Take the COVID-19 Impacts on Maryland’s Cultural, Historical and Natural Heritage Organizations.
Note: Please submit your responses by March 12.
The American Association for State and Local History is currently accepting responses to their annual “National Visitation Survey for History Organizations,” the only national effort to monitor and report on in-person visitation trends at history museums, historic sites, and other history organizations. This survey will help the field assess the impact extended closures from Covid-19, climate change, social unrest, and more had on our institutions last year. In addition to asking about changes to in-person visitation from 2019 to 2020, the survey includes a special section about the impact of the pandemic on operations, capacity restrictions, and staffing.
Note: The survey closes on March 31.
To learn more about how visitors like you engage with historical sites and museums, Historic London Town and Gardens is participating in a national survey of museum-goers, sponsored by the American Alliance of Museums. This survey will provide them with data to help them more effectively share their work with the communities they serve.
Thank you for your participation!
