NEMO, the The Network of European Museum Organisations, happy to share Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums with you.
In the introduction, NEMO's chair David Vuillaume writes that museums are integrated into the economic world, but come with certain and unique specifics and layers. "They are a part of the leisure society, but cannot be compared to theme parks. They have an impact on tourism, but are not simply marketing instruments for a region or a city. They create work and wealth, but not in the same way as private companies."
Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums stems from this standpoint and provides perspectives and examples from the European cultural and economic sector on value measurement, profitability, partnerships and cooperation, financial strategies and business models, and the various spill-over effects.
NEMO, The Network of European Museum Organisations, believes and works to demonstrate that museums have an important economic value – in addition to the value of their collections, their social and their educational value.
