09.11.2021 - The COVID-19 pandemic led to a decline in almost all indicators of museum activity in Switzerland in 2020 compared with the previous year. This affected, for instance, the number of events (–62%), the number of guided visits (–54%) or the number of admissions (–43%). However, the health crisis did encourage museums to develop their online content: 40% of them became more active on their websites and 36% on social media. These figures are some of the latest results from the Swiss Museum Statistics from the Swiss Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
