List of the most visited museums in the world and in Italy in 2015

Most visited museums. The list of 10 most visited museums in the world has arrived on time even this year.
The ninth annual edition of the list compiled by il Giornale dell’arte and The Art Newspaper shows a crisis in European cultural tourism, but especially shows the crisis in those museums located in areas where political instability or terrorism risk threaten tourism.

However, in this not too positive situation, it’s time for Italy to reach the top end of the table with a 6% increase in visitors.
There isn’t any Italian museum in the 2015 top ten, but maybe in 2016 there will be a surprise : )

    • Elisabetta, i Vaticani sono al 4° posto nella classifica mondiale, ma devi anche pensare che non sono italiani, perché sono gestiti e all’interno del territorio dello Stato Vaticano.
      I Capitolini sono al posto n. 17 della classifica italiana, mentre nella classifica mondiale non sono neppure tra i primi 100 … in pratica stanno fuori classifica.

      • Scusa i Vaticanii erano sfuggiti leggendo l’articolo… e infatti mi pareva strano…
        comunque i musei di Londra sono gratis a quanto mi risulta…non so se questo possa infleunzare il numero.

        • Secondo me influisce parecchio. Non a caso negli ultimi due anni sono aumentati gli ingressi nei musei italiani. E’ da due anni infatti che la prima domenica del mese si entra gratuitamente in tutti i musei statali e anche in molti altri che si sono adeguati all’iniziativa.
