The Visitor Studies Group’s Kayte McSweeney takes your questions
What value does audience research offer museums and how can it collected as efficiently as possible? What advantages do different methods bring? How can technology be used to enhance traditional visitor surveys?

Whatever your question, Museum Practice is here to help with its monthly Ask the Expert feature.

Using evidence from audience research and evaluation, she advocates on behalf of visitors to support the development of high quality and engaging learning experiences in museums.

Her work includes the evaluation of exhibitions, audience engagement initiatives and digital engagement tools; researching the impact of learning programmes; exploring the influence of co-creation projects; and findings ways of increasing audience engagement and accessibility.
