Summary

Understanding our audiences is integral to enhancing access to the museums and collections. This audience research allows us to get to know who our visitors are, where they come from, and what their motivations for visiting are. We can also learn more about who is not currently visiting the museums. The data in turn provides the structure and direction for future work and allows the Fitzwilliam Museum to respond to what our visitors want and how to attract new audiences. From 14 – 19 November & 28 November – 3 December 2017, the Fitzwilliam Museum would like to conduct exit interviews with museum visitors. We require surveys to be taken Tuesday to Sunday, with morning or afternoon shifts available every day. We are looking for volunteers to deliver the interviews in an engaging, positive and meaningful way.
