Annual Statistics Survey 2022-2023

Museums & Galleries Queensland (M&G QLD) is asking for your help to collect statistics about your gallery/museum for the 2022-23 calendar years.

Linked below is a survey which we are asking you to complete and return to M&G QLD by Monday 12 August 2024. Submit your survey by the due date, and your organisation will go in the running to win one free registration for a nominated staff member or volunteer to attend M&G QLD’s 2024 Conference, Belonging.  

Alternatively, a fillable and printable PDF copy of the form can be downloaded here. If choosing this option, please email your completed form to [email protected] 

Collecting these statistics is important to us. M&G QLD uses them for a number of purposes:  

  • To build a ‘snapshot’ of visitation trends across regions; 
  • To analyse trends between groups of galleries and museums – eg. small, medium, large;  
  • To compare these trends from year to year;
  • To allow M&G QLD to build an accurate picture of the sector to inform our current and future programs, services, policies and directions — to better service Queensland galleries and museums;  
  • To advocate to all levels of government about the value of museums and galleries locally, state-wide and nationally – e.g. as vital institutions within their communities, as tourism destinations within the State, etc.  

M&G QLD will use the statistics only in aggregate form for the purposes outlined above – we will not make public any individual gallery/museum visitor statistics.         

If you have any questions about the survey or M&G QLD’s use of this data please contact M&G QLD at P: 07 3059 9740, freecall 1800 866 101, or E: [email protected].         

The survey should only take 5–10 minutes to complete. We thank you for your time and effort in assisting M&G QLD to collect this important data.

Annual statistics reports

Each year, M&G QLD collects statistics from Queensland’s 400+ public galleries and museums across the State, capturing data on annual visitation, staffing, volunteers and exhibitions.
