The number of visitors to the Danish museums fell by a third in 2020, which was marked by the corona eruption and two rounds of closures.
In total, the museums had 10.3 million visitors, which is 5.3 million fewer than in 2019. This is shown by a statement from Statistics Denmark.
The biggest decline was in art museums and the cultural history museums, while things were a little better in the natural history museums.
The decline must be seen in light of the fact that the museums were closed during parts of 2020.
At the same time, there has been a large decline in the number of tourists from abroad, as there were travel restrictions for most of 2020.
Louisiana in North Zealand was the most visited museum last year with 403,000, followed closely by Aros and the Old Town in Aarhus.
Museums have also been hit by the second wave of closures in late 2020 and early 2021.
The indoor museums were allowed to reopen last week, where coronapas are required to be displayed to enter.
