Pittsburgh Business Times: Plight Of The Museums

Pittsburgh Business Times: Plight Of The Museums. “Like all other tourism and entertainment attractions, the coronavirus pandemic has upended the nation’s museums. Many have shuttered or drastically cut back on programs and exhibits to offset declines in visitor traffic. Others, like the National Museum of African American Music, have stalled openings and renovations until they can rebalance financially. In many cases, that will be long after any Covid-19 related restrictions are lifted. What’s clear is the pandemic has eviscerated traditional revenue streams — ticket sales, membership dues and funding for education programs — linked to the day-to-day operations of most museums.”
