Analysing the Impact of The British Museum’s Partnership Arrangements
The British Museum has appointed DC Research to investigate the economic impact of its partnership working across the UK. This study builds on partnership evaluation research undertaken by DC Research in 2011, which highlighted that The British Museum’s partner museums have reached new audiences, created new displays, ignited new interest in, and attracted additional visitors by working in partnership with The British Museum.
This study is designed to build on this work, by quantifying the economic impacts derived by partner museums in their local economies as a result of working in partnership with The British Museum. It is intended that this will include four impact specific case studies that will enable impact assumptions to be tested, provide tangible examples of economic impact in specific museums, and provide a rationale for understanding how partnership with The British Museum generates impacts and adds value to complement the impact of each museum.
