Welcome to IMA Dashboard, an ongoing effort to measure various aspects of the Museum's performance. We welcome your comments on our progress in serving the IMA's mission. To navigate the Dashboard in particular areas, the tabs at the top of the screen drop down to allow for more detail. The goal of the Dashboard is to seek to quantify and report out on areas of activity of general interest to museum observers and to particular interest to museum studies specialists, colleagues, and patrons.
Visits by members as a percentage of the total Museum attendance in 2008.
Membership is a critical function of our mission that dates back to the year we were founded--1883.
Fun fact: In 1883, you could join the IMA for $10 ($200 in today's economy). For non members, general admission was free and special exhibition admission was 10 cents ($2 today).
Members are asked to present their membership card at the ticket counter upon arrival to the Museum. This figure is the total number of cards presented by members, divided by the total attendance count to date. The data is reported to the dashboard by the IMA’s Membership Manager.
