Abstract

Two galleries in the British Museum's Department of Coins and Medals were evaluated to determine their impact on visitors. Tracking studies and questionnaire surveys conducted in Gallery 68 and Gallery 69a revealed that improvements can be made. Gallery 69a would benefit from increased advertising, and the content of cases in Gallery 68 should be updated and displayed in a new fashion. We also created a formula to calibrate a people counter for more accurate visitor estimates, and modified the educational program evaluation protocols to increase feedback from students and teachers.
