Abstract

Through a comparative survey based on a unique dataset, we highlight existing similarities and differences in the museum demand of two similar institutions located in two different European cities, Padua and Seville. While considering some of the peculiarities of the two museums, we examine the heterogeneity of their visitors’ profiles and their factual, motivational, and evaluative stated behaviours. In particular, these characteristics are econometrically regressed to explain the assiduousness of the two museums’ audiences. A partir de una encuesta comparativa, integrada en una única base de datos, se analizan y ponen de manifiesto las similitudes y diferencias en la demanda de museos de dos instituciones similares, localizadas en dos ciudades europeas, Padua y Sevilla. Se estudian las peculiaridades de los dos museos y examinamos la heterogeneidad de los visitantes: sus perfiles y comportamiento. Nos hemos centrado en un análisis econométrico a fin de explicar la relación de las características de los visitantes con la asiduidad de las visitas.
