The Economic Impact Of Museums: Why Museums Are F***Ing Awesome

Recently, the American Alliance of Museums released a new study, Museums as Economic Engines.

It provides the hard data that, beyond the obvious cultural impact, museums are also absolutely essential to the national economy.

Museums:

  • generate GDP
  • create jobs
  • contribute taxes

We have always known that museums are f***ing awesome and now, thanks to AAM, we have the facts and stats to back it up!

We’ve made a quick infographic highlighting the key points from AAM’s Museums as Economic Engines: A National Study.

You can read the full report about the amazing effect museums have in their communities and on our economy.

Thanks, AAM + Oxford Economics, for the data about how awesome museums are!
