National Museums: To Charge or not to charge?
AbstractThis paper looks at the arguments for and against admission charges to national museums and provides some new evidence relating to the effects of charges. This debate is set in the context of the policy objective of access: the vast majority of the population do not attend national museums and evidence on this and on the socio-economic composition of those who do attend is presented for Ireland.
