Museums By Attendance 5

The next ten museums in the world ranked by the number of annual visitors from ages 20 to 40 are the following: Field Museum of Natural History, Tokyo National Museum, Rijkmuseum, China Three Gorges Museum, Shangai Museum, Zhejiang Museum of Natural History, Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, U.S. Holocaust Museum, State Tretyakov Gallery, and National Science & Technology Museum. All the required details were entered into the attached spreadsheet in rows 42 to 51.

METHODOLOGY

In order to identify the next top ten museums in the world by the number of annual visitors who are 20 to 40 years of age, we first looked for directly available lists that ranked museums around the world based on this specified metric. We searched for reports or articles containing ranked lists in relevant museum and tourist industry sites such as the Global Museum Org, Eurozine, Unesco, Science Museum, and others; publications such as Forbes, Business Insider, Huffington Post, BBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Arts, The Art Newspaper, and other related sources. Based on this approach, we were not able to find any report or article that contains a ranked listing of the top museums in the world based on the number of visitors aged 20 to 40 years old. What we found from this search is the 2017 Museum Index report from AECOM and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) on the top museums from around the world that were ranked based on the number of yearly visitors. However, the report did not specify the ages of those visitors.
The 2017 Museum Index breaks out the top 20 Museums by region, split into North America, Asia-Pacific, and EMEA. Using each list we removed any museums already listed in the previous research and worked through each list to identify the next top 10 museums visited by 20 to 40 year olds, based on the calculations below. We searched for relevant statistics that could help in breaking down the age groups of the visitors of these identified museums. We went through another round of search through the sites mentioned above to look for any industry surveys, articles, and other reports that could contain these specific age-related visitor figures. However, this approach did not yield any visitor age ranking information for the museums that we have already identified. What we found was a promising global museum report that was behind a paywall. However, we could not confirm if the report really contained the ranking of the museums based on the age of their visitors as the contents were hidden.
We then tried another approach by identifying any country-specific statistics on the age ranges of the museum visitors in our draft list. Next, we obtained the countries where these museums were located from the Museum Index report. Based on the report, the following are the locations of these museums: the United States, Japan, China, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and Taiwan. Given this information, we searched for country-specific age demographic information on the visitors of the museum types in our draft list. We looked for this information in various sources such as in the survey sources like the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Association of Museums, Humanities Indicators, the European Group on Museum Statistics, and other similar sites; industry reports such as the Museum Audience Report, and other related articles, government statistics databases such as the Ministry of Culture Statistics in France, and other similar sources; trusted media sites such as the RBTH, Sup China, SCMP, China Daily, and other relevant sources. Based on this approach, we were able to find a breakdown by age groups for the United Kingdom the United States, and France. However, we were not able to find the visitor age breakdown for the other countries. What we found for Japan, China, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and Taiwan were mainly general museum statistics and information that were not related to the specified visitor age breakdown for the museums that we were looking for.
We also tried looking for the visitor age breakdown in the official sites of the ten museums in our draft list. However, there were no relevant visitor age demographic data breakdown found. What we found were general museum visitor information that were not useful for the age metrics that we need. We then consolidated all the information found from our search strategies above to derive the approximate percentage of museum visitors who are 20 to 40 years of age. The age demographics percentage data from the UK, the US, and France were multiplied with the number of visitors of the top museums from these countries in our draft list. In the case of Japan, China, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and Taiwan who don't have this percentage breakdown, we derived a global visitor average age breakdown from the available data of the UK, the US, and France. We also found this data for Canada so we included this as well in calculating for the global average. We then ranked the museums in our draft list after completing the calculations for their visitors' age breakdown data. The section below contains the calculations. Given the constraints around the availability of this data, please take note that the age ranges can sometimes go over the age of 40 or fall under the given minimum age range of 20 years old.

CALCULATIONS

THE UNITED STATES

As per the 2017 survey of the Public Participation in the Arts group, 24% of museum visitors belong to the age bracket of 18-24 years, 25.3% into the age bracket of 25-34 years, and 27.4% into the 35-44 years bracket. Based on this, the total percentage for the 18 to 44 years age bracket will be the following: 24% + 25.3% + 27.4% = 76.7%. These percentages were mostly for those art-related museums. However, given the limited amount of data and the similarity of the categories, we have extrapolated that these figures were also applicable to other types of museums in the US.
The following are the calculations for the next top US museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:
Field Museum of Natural History : 1,800,000 visitors
Field Museum of Natural History Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 1,800,000 = 1,380,600 visitors

U.S. Holocaust Museum of Natural History : 1,700,000 visitors
U.S. Holocaust Museum of Natural History Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 1,700,000 = 1,303,900 visitors

GLOBAL AVERAGE

Since we were not able to find the visitors' age breakdown statistics for Japan, China, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and Taiwan we decided to use the average percentages that were calculated above for the UK, US, France, and the available figure from a museum survey in Canada. We have extrapolated the derived percentage as the global average based on the limited available information.

Based on the Museum Audience Report, 10% of museum visitors in the UK belong to the age bracket of 16-24 years, 16% in the 25-34 years bracket, and 18% in the 35-44 year bracket. This results in a total of (10% + 16% + 18%) 44% of visitors that fall in the age bracket of 16-44 years.
Based on the Canadian survey, around 8% of the visitors in the age bracket of 15-24 went to the museums, 15% from the age bracket of 25-34, and 42% from the 35-54 age bracket. The total global percentage for the museum visitors' age bracket of 15 to 54 year was calculated as follows: 8% + 15% + 42% = 65%.
Global average museum visitors' age for the target age bracket = (percentage UK + percentage US + percentage France + percentage Canada) / 4 = (44% + 76.7% + 66.4% + 65%)/4 = 63%
This percentage was then applied in the visitor age breakdown calculations for the museums from in our draft list for museums in Japan, China, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, and Taiwan:
Tokyo National Museum = 2,180,000 Visitors from all age groups
Tokyo National Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,180,000 = 1,373,400 visitors
Rijkmuseum = 2,160,000 Visitors from all age groups
Rijkmuseum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,160,000 = 1,360,800 visitors
China Three Gorges Museum = 2,112,000 Visitors from all age groups
China Three Gorges Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,112,000 = 1,330,560 visitors
Shangai Museum = 2,190,000 Visitors from all age groups
Shangai Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,190,000 = 1,328,670 visitors
Zhejiang Museum of Natural History = 2,100,000 Visitors from all age groups
Zhejiang Museum of Natural History Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,100,000 = 1,323,000 visitors
Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum = 2,100,000 Visitors from all age groups
Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,100,000 = 1,323,000 visitors

State Tretyakov Gallery = 2,024,000 Visitors from all age groups
State Tretyakov Gallery Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,024,000 = 1,275,120 visitors

National Science & Technology Museum = 1,981,000 Visitors from all age groups
National Science & Technology Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 1,981,000 = 1,248,030 visitors

The following are the calculations for the next top US museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:
Houston Museum of Natural Science: 2,295,000 visitors
Houston Museum of Natural Science Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 2,295,000 = 1,760,265 visitors
California Science Center : 2,106,000 visitors
California Science Center Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 2,106,000 = 1,615,302 visitors

FRANCE

After going through the search strategies mentioned above, the latest complete breakdown of museum visitors by age that we were able to find for France was from a survey with data points from 2004. Given this outdated data, we decided to combine this information with the 2017 data of Louvre, the most visited museum in the country. Based on the 2017 Louvre visitors' data, 15.3% of the museum's visitors were 18 years old and below. In 2004, the percentage of French museum visitors aged 50 and above was 18.3%. Given the limited data available, we have concluded that this statistic was still valid in 2017 and has not greatly changed.
Hence, the percentage of visitors between the ages 18-50 years was calculated to be the following = 100% — (15.3% + 18.3%) = 66.4%.
The following are the calculations for the next top French museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:

Cite Des Sciences et de L'Industris = 2,439,000 Visitors from all age groups
Cite Des Sciences et de L'Industris Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.767 x 2,439,000 = 1,423,800 visitors

We have extrapolated the derived percentage as the global average based on the limited available information.
Based on the Canadian survey, around 8% of the visitors in the age bracket of 15-24 went to the museums, 15% from the age bracket of 25-34, and 42% from the 35-54 age bracket. The total global percentage for the museum visitors' age bracket of 15 to 54 year was calculated as follows: 8% + 15% + 42% = 65%.
Global average museum visitors' age for the target age bracket = (percentage UK + percentage US + percentage France + percentage Canada) / 4 = (44% + 76.7% + 66.4% + 65%)/4 = 63%
This percentage was then applied in the visitor age breakdown calculations for the museums from in our draft list for museums in China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan :
National Science Education Center = 2,869,000 Visitors from all age groups
National Science Education Center Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 2,869,000 = 1,807,470 visitors

However, given the limited amount of data and the similarity of the categories, we have extrapolated that these figures were also applicable to other types of museums in the US.
The following are the calculations for the next top US museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:

The Museum of Modern Art: 2,750,000 visitors
The Museum of Modern Art Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 2,750,000 = 2,109.250 visitors

National Museum of African American History and Culture: 2,400,000 visitors
National Museum of African American History and Culture Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 2,400,000 = 1,840,800 visitors

The following are the calculations for the next top French museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:
Musee D'Orsay = 3,178,000 Visitors from all age groups
Musee D'Orsay Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.767 x 3,178,000 = 2,110,192 visitors

GLOBAL AVERAGE

Since we were not able to find the visitors' age breakdown statistics for China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, we decided to use the average percentages that were calculated above for the UK, US, France, and the available figure from a museum survey in Canada. We have extrapolated the derived percentage as the global average based on the limited available information.
Based on the Canadian survey, around 8% of the visitors in the age bracket of 15-24 went to the museums, 15% from the age bracket of 25-34, and 42% from the 35-54 age bracket. The total global percentage for the museum visitors' age bracket of 15 to 54 year was calculated as follows: 8% + 15% + 42% = 65%.
Global average museum visitors' age for the target age bracket = (percentage UK + percentage US + percentage France + percentage Canada) / 4 = (44% + 76.7% + 66.4% + 65%)/4 = 63%
This percentage was then applied in the visitor age breakdown calculations for the museums from in our draft list for museums in China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan :

Zhejiang Museum = 3,670,000 Visitors from all age groups
Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,670,000 = 2,312,100 visitors
National Museum of Korea = 3,477,000 Visitors from all age groups
National Museum of Korea Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,477,000 = 2,190,150 visitors
Gansu Provincial Museum = 3,350,000 Visitors from all age groups
Gansu Provincial Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,350,000 = 2,079,000 visitors

Nanjing Museum = 3,300,000 Visitors from all age groups
Nanjing Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,300,000 = 2,079,000 visitors

National Museum of Natural Science = 3,151,000 Visitors from all age groups
National Museum of Natural Science Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,115,000 = 1,962,450 visitors

Chengdu Museum = 3,000,000 Visitors from all age groups
Chengdu Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,000,000 = 1,890,000 visitors

The next ten museums in the world ranked by the number of annual visitors from ages 20 to 40 are the following: The National Museum of American History - 2,914,600 visitors; the State Hermitage - 2,658,000 visitors; The British Museum - 2,599,080 visitors; the Centre Pompidou - 2,585,557 visitors; the China Science Technology Museum - 2,509,290 visitors; the Tate Modern - 2,488,640 visitors; the Reina Sofia - 2,454,110 visitors; The National Gallery - 2,300,760 visitors; the Natural History Museum - 1,951,400 visitors; and The Victoria & Albert Museum - 1,667,600 visitors. All of the required details were inputted in the linked spreadsheet within rows 12 to 21.

METHODOLOGY

In order to identify the next top ten museums in the world by the number of annual visitors who are 20 to 40 years of age, we first looked for directly available lists that ranked museums around the world based on this specified metric. We searched for reports or articles containing ranked lists in relevant museum and tourist industry sites such as the Global Museum Org, Eurozine, Unesco, Science Museum, and others; publications such as Forbes, Business Insider, Huffington Post, BBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Arts, The Art Newspaper, and other related sources. Based on this approach, we were not able to find any report or article that contains a ranked listing of the top museums in the world based on the number of visitors aged 20 to 40 years old. What we found from this search is the 2017 Museum Index report from AECOM and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) on the top museums from around the world that were ranked based on the number of yearly visitors. However, the report did not specify the ages of those visitors.

Based on the 2017 Museum Index report, we were able to get a list of the top museums that were ranked based on the number of annual visitors. We then checked the linked spreadsheet from a previous research to remove those museums in our list that were already identified as the top ten based on the number of visitors aged 20 to 40 years old. Once we finalized our list of the next top ten potential museums based on the number of visitors, we then went on to further rank these museums based on the specified age range of their annual visitors. We then searched for relevant statistics that could help in breaking down the age groups of the visitors of these identified museums. We went through another round of search through the sites mentioned above to look for any industry surveys, articles, and other reports that could contain these specific age-related visitor figures. However, this approach did not yield any visitor age ranking information for the museums that we have already identified. What we found was a promising global museum report that was behind a paywall. However, we could not confirm if the report really contained the ranking of the museums based on the age of their visitors as the contents were hidden.
We then tried another approach by identifying any country-specific statistics on the age ranges of the museum visitors in our draft list. Next, we obtained the countries where these museums were located from the Museum Index report. Based on the report, the following are the locations of these museums: the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Spain, the US, and France. Given this information, we searched for country-specific age demographic information on the visitors of the museum types in our draft list. We looked for this information in various sources such as in the survey sources like the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Association of Museums, Humanities Indicators, the European Group on Museum Statistics, and other similar sites; industry reports such as the Museum Audience Report, and other related articles, government statistics databases such as the Ministry of Culture Statistics in France, the Ministry of Culture and Sport of Spain, the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, and other similar sources; trusted media sites such as the Moscow Times, RBTH, El Pais, Murcia Today, Sup China, SCMP, China Daily, and other relevant sources. Based on this approach, we were able to find a breakdown by age groups for the United Kingdom, the United States, and France. However, we were not able to find the visitor age breakdown for the other countries. What we found for Spain, Russia, and China were mainly general museum statistics and information that were not related to the specified visitor age breakdown for the museums that we were looking for.
We also tried looking for the visitor age breakdown in the official sites of the ten museums in our draft list. However, there were no relevant visitor age demographic data breakdown found. What we found were general museum visitor information that were not useful for the age metrics that we need. We then consolidated all the information found from our search strategies above to derive the approximate percentage of museum visitors who are 20 to 40 years of age. The age demographics percentage data from the UK, the US, and France were multiplied with the number of visitors of the top museums from these countries in our draft list. In the case of China, Russia, and Spain who don't have this percentage breakdown, we derived a global visitor average age breakdown from the available data of the UK, the US, and France. We also found this data for Canada so we included this as well in calculating for the global average. We then ranked the museums in our draft list after completing the calculations for their visitors' age breakdown data. The section below contains the calculations. Given the constraints around the availability of this data, please take note that the age ranges can sometimes go over the age of 40 or fall under the given minimum age range of 20 years old.

MUSEUMS BY ATTENDANCE

CALCULATIONS

THE UNITED KINGDOM

Based on the Museum Audience Report, 10% of museum visitors in the UK belong to the age bracket of 16-24 years, 16% in the 25-34 years bracket, and 18% in the 35-44 year bracket. This results in a total of (10% + 16% + 18%) 44% of visitors that fall in the age bracket of 16-44 years.
The following are the calculations for the next top UK museums in our draft list and their number of visitors:
The British Museum = 5,907,000 visitors from all age groups
British Museum age bracket for 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,907,000 visitors = 2,599,080 visitors
Tate Modern = 5,656,000 visitors from all age groups
Tate Modern age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,656,000 visitors = 2,488,640 visitors
The National Gallery = 5,229,000 visitors from all age groups
The National Gallery age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,229,000 visitors = 2,300,760
Natural History Museum = 4,435,000 visitors from all age groups
Natural History Museum age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 4,435,000 visitors = 1,951,400
The Victoria & Albert Museum = 3,790,000 visitors from all age groups
The Victoria & Albert Museum age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 3,790,000 visitors = 1,667,600

THE UNITED STATES

As per the 2017 survey of the Public Participation in the Arts group, 24% of museum visitors belong to the age bracket of 18-24 years, 25.3% into the age bracket of 25-34 years, and 27.4% into the 35-44 years bracket. Based on this, the total percentage for the 18 to 44 years age bracket will be the following: 24% + 25.3% + 27.4% = 76.7%. These percentages were mostly for those art-related museums. However, given the limited amount of data and the similarity of the categories, we have extrapolated that these figures were also applicable to other types of museums in the US.
The following are the calculations for the next top US museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:
The National Museum of American History: 3,800,000 visitors
The National Museum of American History Visitors' Age Bracket 18-44 years old = 0.767 x 3,800,000 = 2,914,600 visitors

FRANCE

After going through the search strategies mentioned above, the latest complete breakdown of museum visitors by age that we were able to find for France was from a survey with data points from 2004. Given this outdated data, we decided to combine this information with the 2017 data of Louvre, the most visited museum in the country. Based on the 2017 Louvre visitors' data, 15.3% of the museum's visitors were 18 years old and below. In 2004, the percentage of French museum visitors aged 50 and above was 18.3%. Given the limited data available, we have concluded that this statistic was still valid in 2017 and has not greatly changed.
Hence, the percentage of visitors between the ages 18-50 years was calculated to be the following = 100% - (15.3% + 18.3%) = 66.4%.
The following are the calculations for the next top French museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:
Centre Pompidou = 3,371,000 Visitors from all age groups
Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.767 x 3,371,000 = 2,585,557 visitors

GLOBAL AVERAGE

Since we were not able to find the visitors' age breakdown statistics for Russia, China, and Spain, we decided to use the average percentages that were calculated above for the UK, US, France, and the available figure from a museum survey in Canada. We have extrapolated the derived percentage as the global average based on the limited available information.
Based on the Canadian survey, around 8% of the visitors in the age bracket of 15-24 went to the museums, 15% from the age bracket of 25-34, and 42% from the 35-54 age bracket. The total global percentage for the museum visitors' age bracket of 15 to 54 year was calculated as follows: 8% + 15% + 42% = 65%.
Global average museum visitors' age for the target age bracket = (percentage UK + percentage US + percentage France + percentage Canada) / 4 = (44% + 76.7% + 66.4% + 65%)/4 = 63%
This percentage was then applied in the visitor age breakdown calculations for the museums from Russia, China, and Spain in our draft list:
State Hermitage = 4,220,000 Visitors from all age groups
Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 4,220,000 = 2,658,600 visitors
China Science Technology Museum = 3,983,000 Visitors from all age groups
China Science Technology Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,983,000 = 2,509,290 visitors
Reina Sofia = 3,897,000 Visitors from all age groups
Reina Sofia Museum Visitors' Age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.63 x 3,897,000 = 2,454,110 visitors

FINDINGS

Based on the calculated visitors' data above for the +/- 20 to 40 age bracket, the following are the next top ten museums identified:
1. The National Museum of American History - 2,914,600 visitors belonging to the +/- 20 to 40 age bracket
2. State Hermitage - 2,658,000 visitors belonging to the +/- 20 to 40 age bracket

Museums By Attendance 1

The top ten museums in the world ranked by the number of annual visitors aged 20-40 years are the Louvre, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of China, the National Museum of Natural History, the Vatican Museum, the Shanghai Science & Technology Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, and the National Palace Museum. On the attached spreadsheet the requested information can be found in rows 2-11.

METHODOLOGY

To determine the top ten museums in the world by the number of annual visitors aged 20-40 years, we first searched for readily available lists of museums ranked by this criterion. We searched for any industry reports and news articles on trusted media sites (such as The Art Newspaper, the New York Times). Our search provided no ranked list by the requested criterion. However, through this search we were able to find a report, the 2017 Museum Index, by AECOM and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) on the top museums globally ranked by the number of visitors.

As we had a ranked list of museums and the number of visitors annually for each museum in 2017, our next strategy was to find a breakdown of the percentage of visitors by age and type of museum. With this information it would be possible to determine the number of visitors in the age group 20-40 years for each museum. For this purpose we searched for industry reports, surveys, news articles, and statistics on the breakdown. What information that was available, was either behind a paywall (of which we could not confirm if it contained relevant information to our research) or country specific.

From the Museum Index we were able to determine the countries where the top museums were located: France, China, the U.S., the U.K. and Vatican City. We, therefore targeted country specific information on the breakdown of visitors by age and type of museum. We searched through surveys (such as Humanities Indicators, National Endowment for the Arts, American Association of Museums, European Group on Museum Statistics), industry reports (such as the Museum Audience Report), government statistics (such as Ministry of Culture Statistics in France and Italy), trusted media sites (such as China Daily). From this search we were able to find a breakdown by age for the United Kingdom, the United States, and France. For the Vatican City we expanded our search to Italy and assumed that visitation patterns for Italy would match those for the Vatican City. However, we were unable to find a breakdown of visitors by age. For China, we were only able to find some information on visitations to the Palace museum, however, this information was not specific.

As a last strategy, we searched for information on visitors on the websites of the top ten museums. However, except for the Louvre, where we were able to find a partial age breakdown, we were unable to find any further breakdown.

With the information gathered, an estimation was made of the percentage of visitors in the age group 20-40 years. The age breakdown gathered from the US, the UK, and France was directly multiplied with the number of visitors from top museums in these countries. For museums in China and the Vatican City, we calculated an average percentage of visitors from the data for the UK, the US, and France and added data from Canada to the calculation as well. This average was regarded as a global average. With the calculated number of visitors, we ranked the museums. Below are the calculations. Please note that the age ranges often exceed the age of 40 or fall under the age of 20 years.

CALCULATIONS

THE UNITED KINGDOM
According to the Museum Audience Report, 10% of museum visitors in the UK fall into the age category 16-24 years, 16% in the category 25-34 years, and 18% in the category 35-44 years. This is a total of 44% of visitors that fall in the age group between 16-44 years.

Top UK museums and the number of visitors:
The British Museum = 5,907,000 visitors
British Museum age group 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,907,000 visitors = 2,599,080 visitors
Tate Modern = 5,656,000 visitors.
Tate Modern age group 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,656,000 visitors = 2,488,640 visitors

THE UNITED STATES
According to the 2017 survey of Public Participation in the Arts, 24% of museum visitors fall within the age group of 18-24 years, 25.3% fall into the age group 25-34 years, and 27.4% fall into the age group of 35-44 years. This adds up to 76.7%. Although the statistics regard the arts, we are assuming that this percentage also applies to other types of museums and have used it as a proxy for other types museums in the US.

Top US museums and the number of visitors:
National Air and Space = 7,000,000 visitors
Visitors Age group 18-44 = 0.767 x 7,000,000 = 5,369,000 visitors
National Metropolitan Museum of Art = 7,000,000 visitors
Visitors Age group 18-44 = 0.767 x 7,000,000 = 5,369,000 visitors
National Museum of Natural History = 6,000,000 visitors
Visitors Age group 18-44 = 0.767 x 6,000,000 = 4,602,000 visitors
National Gallery of Art = 5,232,000 visitors
Visitors Age group 18-44 = 0.767 x 5,232,000 = 4,012,944 visitors

FRANCE
The most recent complete breakdown of museum visitors by age that we were able to find dates from a survey conducted in 2004. We were also able to find a Louvre Activity Report from 2017. We combined the information from these two sources. In 2017, 15.3% of visitors were 18 years and under. In 2004, the percentage of visitors aged 50 and over were 18.3%. We are assuming that this statistic was still valid in 2017 and has not changed significantly.
Therefore, the percentage of visitor between the ages 18-50 years was = 100% - (15.3% + 18.3%) = 66.4%

Top French museum and the number of visitors:
Louvre = 8,100,000 visitors
Visitors age group 18-49 years = 0.664 x 8,100,000 visitors = 5,378,400 visitors

GLOBAL AVERAGE
As we were unable to find information for the Vatican and museums in China, we used the average percentages calculated above and the included information on a survey found for Canada. We regarded these numbers as a global average.

According to the Canadian survey 8% of visitors in the age group 15-24 visited museums, 15% in the age group 25-34, and 42% in the age group 35-54. This adds up to a total of 65%.

Global average = (percentage UK + percentage US + percentage France + percentage Canada) / 4 = (44% + 76.7% + 66.4% + 65%)/4 = 63%

This percentage was applied to museums in China and the Vatican City. The top Chinese and Vatican City museums are:
National Museum of China = 8,063,000 visitors
Visitors age group 20-40 years = 0.63 x 8,063,000 = 5,079690 visitors
Shanghai Science & Technology Museum = 6,421,000 visitors
Visitors age group 20-40 years = 6,421,000 x 0.63 = 4,045,230 visitors
Vatican Museum = 6,427,000 visitors
Age group 20-40years = 0.63 x 6,427,000 visitors = 4,049,010 visitors

ADDITIONAL CHECK
Originally we assumed that the top ten museums ranked by the number of visitors would remain the top ten museums for visitors age 20-40 years, although we expected the ranking to change. Given the low museum attendance percentage in the UK and the high percentage in the U.S. we double-checked the next two ranked museums to determine if their visitors in the age group of 20-40 years might exceed those of the UK.

American Museum of Natural History (US museum) = 5,000,000
Visitors age 20-40years = 0.767 x 5,000,000 = 3,835,000 visitors
National Palace Museum (Taiwan) = 4,436,000 visitors
Visitors age 20-40 years = 0.63 x 4,436,000 visitors = 2,794,680 visitors
[The global average was applied]

As both museums exceeded the number of visitors for the two UK museums (British Museum and Tate Modern), we have replaced the British museums with them.

methodology

To determine the top fifty museums in the world by the number of annual visitors aged 20-40 years, we first searched for readily available lists of museums ranked by this criterion. We searched for any industry reports and news articles on trusted media sites (such as The Art Newspaper, the New York Times). Our search provided no ranked list by the requested criterion. However, through this search we were able to find a report, the 2017 Museum Index, by AECOM and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) on the top museums globally ranked by the number of visitors.
The 2017 Museum Index breaks out the top 20 Museums by region, split into North America, Asia-Pacific, and EMEA. Using this information we were able to determine the top museums globally based on attendance. We went through another round of searches on the sites mentioned above to look for any industry surveys, articles, and other reports that could contain these specific age-related visitor figures. However, this approach did not yield any visitor age ranking information for the museums that we have already identified. What we found was a promising global museum report that was behind a paywall. However, we could not confirm if the report really contained the ranking of the museums based on the age of their visitors as the contents were hidden.
From the Museum Index we were able to determine the countries where the top museums were located: France, United States, China, Vatican City, Taiwan, Russia, United Kingdom, Spain, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Netherlands, Italy, and Poland. We therefore targeted country specific information on the breakdown of visitors by age and type of museum. We searched through surveys (such as Humanities Indicators, National Endowment for the Arts, American Association of Museums, European Group on Museum Statistics), industry reports (such as the Museum Audience Report), government statistics (such as Ministry of Culture Statistics in France and Italy), and trusted media sites (such as China Daily). From this search we were able to find a breakdown by age for the United Kingdom, the United States, and France.
As a last strategy, we searched for information on visitors on the websites of the top fifty museums. However, except for the Louvre, where we were able to find a partial age breakdown, we were unable to find any further breakdown. What we found was general museum visitor information that was not useful for the age metrics that we need. We then consolidated all the information found from our search strategies above to derive the approximate percentage of museum visitors who are 20 to 40 years of age. We also found this data for Canada so we included this as well in calculating for the global average. We then ranked the museums in our draft list after completing the calculations for their visitors' age breakdown data. The section below contains the calculations. Given the constraints around the availability of this data, please take note that the age ranges can sometimes go over the age of 40 or fall under the given minimum age range of 20 years old.
With the information gathered, an estimation was made of the percentage of visitors in the age group 20-40 years. The age breakdown gathered from the US, the UK, and France was directly multiplied with the number of visitors from top museums in these countries. For museums in countries with no specific data, we calculated an average percentage of visitors from the data for the UK, the US, and France and added data from Canada to the calculation as well. This average was regarded as a global average. With the calculated number of visitors, we ranked the museums. Below are the calculations.

Calculations

THE UNITED KINGDOM

Based on the Museum Audience Report, 10% of museum visitors in the UK belong to the age bracket of 16-24 years, 16% in the 25-34 years bracket, and 18% in the 35-44 year bracket. This results in a total of (10% + 16% + 18%) 44% of visitors that fall in the age bracket of 16-44 years.
The following are the calculations for the next top UK museums in our draft list and their number of visitors:

The British Museum = 5,907,000 visitors from all age groups
British Museum age bracket for 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,907,000 visitors = 2,599,080 visitors
Tate Modern = 5,656,000 visitors from all age groups
Tate Modern age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,656,000 visitors = 2,488,640 visitors
The National Gallery = 5,229,000 visitors from all age groups
The National Gallery age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 5,229,000 visitors = 2,300,760
Natural History Museum = 4,435,000 visitors from all age groups
Natural History Museum age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 4,435,000 visitors = 1,951,400
The Victoria & Albert Museum = 3,790,000 visitors from all age groups
The Victoria & Albert Museum age bracket 16-44 years = 0.44 x 3,790,000 visitors = 1,667,600

THE UNITED STATES

As per the 2017 survey of the Public Participation in the Arts group, 24% of museum visitors belong to the age bracket of 18-24 years, 25.3% into the age bracket of 25-34 years, and 27.4% into the 35-44 years bracket. Based on this, the total percentage for the 18 to 44 years age bracket will be the following: 24% + 25.3% + 27.4% = 76.7%. These percentages were mostly for those art-related museums. However, given the limited amount of data and the similarity of the categories, we have extrapolated that these figures were also applicable to other types of museums in the US.
The following are the calculations for the US museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:

National Air and Space = 7,000,000 visitors
National Air and Space age group 18-44 = 0.767 x 7,000,000 = 5,369,000 visitors

National Metropolitan Museum of Art = 7,000,000 visitors
National Metropolitan Museum of Art age group 18-44 = 0.767 x 7,000,000 = 5,369,000 visitors

National Museum of Natural History = 6,000,000 visitors

FRANCE

After going through the search strategies mentioned above, the latest complete breakdown of museum visitors by age that we were able to find for France was from a survey with data points from 2004. Given this outdated data, we decided to combine this information with the 2017 data of Louvre, the most visited museum in the country. Based on the 2017 Louvre visitors' data, 15.3% of the museum's visitors were 18 years old and below. In 2004, the percentage of French museum visitors aged 50 and above was 18.3%. Given the limited data available, we have concluded that this statistic was still valid in 2017 and has not greatly changed.
Hence, the percentage of visitors between the ages 18-50 years was calculated to be the following = 100% - (15.3% + 18.3%) = 66.4%.
The following are the calculations for the top French museum in our draft list and its number of visitors:

Louvre = 8,100,000 Visitors from all age groups
Louvre age Bracket 18-50 years old = 0.664 x 8,100,000 = 5,378,400 visitors
Centre Pompidou = 3,371,000 Visitors from all age groups

GLOBAL AVERAGE

Since we were not able to find the visitors' age breakdown statistics for the remaining countries we decided to use the average percentages that were calculated above for the UK, US, France, and the available figure from a museum survey in Canada. We have extrapolated the derived percentage as the global average based on the limited available information.
Based on the Canadian survey, around 8% of the visitors in the age bracket of 15-24 went to the museums, 15% from the age bracket of 25-34, and 42% from the 35-54 age bracket. The total global percentage for the museum visitors' age bracket of 15 to 54 year was calculated as follows: 8% + 15% + 42% = 65%.
Global average museum visitors' age for the target age bracket = (percentage UK + percentage US + percentage France + percentage Canada) / 4 = (44% + 76.7% + 66.4% + 65%)/4 = 63%
This percentage was then applied in the visitor age breakdown calculations for the museums from the remaining museums in our draft list:
