Luxembourg's Ministry of Culture and the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) have just launched a survey on museum practices in Luxembourg.

From 16 June to 31 August 2021, a representative sample of the resident population will answer this questionnaire intended to provide information on residents' habits in terms of museum visits.

The launch of this survey falls within the context of the implementation of the cultural development plan (Kulturentwécklungsplang) 2018-2028. The survey marks the starting point for a series of studies on the culture sector, which will target the different fields, thus reviving the general studies on the cultural practices of residents carried out in 1999 and 2009.

The purpose of this museum survey is to identify any barriers, needs or difficulties that would prevent part of the population from visiting the country's museum institutions. 

The questionnaire, which is available in five languages ​​(English, French, German, Luxembourgish and Portuguese), will be analysed by LISER in order to draw conclusions on cultural demand, appreciation of the offer and public expectations. A representative sample of the resident population, who have received a letter with an access code, can complete the survey over the next few weeks via the LISER website

In addition, STATEC is carrying out a study with the country's cultural institutions in order to collect data on infrastructure and public access. Crossing data from the public on the one hand and cultural institutions on the other will help draw up a more complete picture of the institutional cultural landscape.
