Nonprofit: Brooklyn Museum

The Brooklyn Museum is one of the world’s most welcoming and contemporary encyclopedic museums with an art collection of over 1.5 million works. Its mission is to create inspiring encounters with art that expand the ways we see ourselves, the world and its possibilities. A well-considered admissions pricing strategy is fundamental for the future of the Museum.

Project: Pricing Strategy

Historically, visitors pay what they want to visit the Brooklyn Museum. On top of suggested admission, the Brooklyn Museum also presents ticketed exhibitions for which paid admission is mandatory. Ticketed exhibitions represent an important source of income. Should the Museum increase the suggested admission and potentially make it mandatory?
