There is still time to register to be part of the 2 year FREE programme run by AIM which will give you comprehensive visitor feedback and have it benchmarked against others like you – excellent for planning! You can register up to 15th August.
I really recommend this incredibly cost effective- and a really smart - way of improving the viability and quality of your museum/site. For more see here Visitor Verdict
