The purpose of this survey is to identify trends related to in-person visitation to historic sites and organizations across the United States and Canada. Later this year, AASLH will share its findings with the entire field, summarizing aggregate visitation trends by institution size, location, type, and other criteria. Your institution's response is critical.

Because this is the first time for this AASLH survey, and we would like to be able to spot changes over the past few years, we are asking for the total number of onsite/in-person visitors (including students) not only for the past year (2018), but also for the year before (2017), and five years ago (2013). These visitation numbers, however you calculate them, are the numbers you report to your board, put in your annual report, etc.

Important! If your organization has multiple sites, or a museum and a site, or multiple divisions to which there are visitors, please complete one questionnaire for each entity.

Individual responses will be kept confidential, though AASLH staff may contact you if we have questions.

Thank you for participating. If you have questions about this survey, please contact AASLH Senior Manager, Strategic Initiatives John Marks (marks@aaslh.org).
