More new exhibitions, more promotion and more available parking were among suggestions to boost attendance at the Otago Museum made by visitors in a recent survey.
Some visitors, among the 100 people surveyed, suggested the museum's Discovery World science centre should be free, and more "kid-focused free exhibitions" were also supported.
Many of the museum's key functions were also strongly backed by visitors, with the goal of collecting and preserving artefacts and specimens attracting an average 9 out of 10 score, followed by research (8.7), special exhibitions (8.6) and regional resources, including travelling exhibits (8.1).
More than 90% of the 44 survey respondents who lived in the Otago region said they felt a sense of pride in the museum, and 84% of those visitors said they would soon return, the recently released survey report showed.
