Description

2019 edition of the EGMUS Plenary meeting took place in Bucharest, on October 22-24, hosted by the National Institute for Cultural Research and Training, in partnership with the Romanian Peasant Museum.

EGMUS is a group founded in 2002, whose main purpose is collecting, intercorrelating and publishing statistical data from the museum sector.

This group actively contributed to the development of ISO 18461 standards and to the support of ISO/CD 21246. EGMUS supports and promotes the harmonization within the museum statistics in collaboration with Eurostat. The statistics provided by EGMUS include:

  • Number of museums;
  • Types of museums (art, science, history etc.);
  • Number of exhibitions;
  • Number of employees and volunteers.

2019 edition of the EGMUS Plenary meeting took place in Bucharest, on October 22-24, hosted by the National Institute for Cultural Research and Training, in partnership with the Romanian Peasant Museum.

During these meetings, the EGMUS members focus on developing aspects related to museums such as the importance of documentation regarding the objects and collections available, the relationship between museums and their virtual (online) representations, the importance of the target groups. A major achievement of EGMUS is the standard questionnaire for collecting statistical data on museums, which should be included in future national and European surveys in order to obtain comparable statistical information on the museums of Europe.
