Ticketing system / Museum and Heritage
What is it about?
This session will introduce Art Tickets, a ticketing platform designed for museums by museums. After several months of research and user experience design and testing, Art Fund launched Art Tickets in 2018. A ticketing system specifically designed to meet the needs of museums and galleries, Art Tickets provides the tools to help improve visitor service and income generation, it’s also free to use for museums in the National Art Pass network. Merrin will demonstrate how easy the system is to use and share some insight into effectively using online ticketing to market your venue and events.
“Art Tickets has been revolutionary for a small organisation like ours. It enables us to connect with a much wider audience online, providing a simple and accessible solution for buying both event and admission tickets. It has also reduced our behind-the-scenes administration by about 80%. Invaluable.” — Jenny Hand, Director, Munnings Museum

This Morning Briefing is sponsored by Art Fund
Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art and supports the vital work of museums and galleries across the UK. We help them build and share collections, do more for their visitors and support the curators of the future.
We also believe that museums and galleries are a great untapped wellbeing resource – read our ‘Calm and collected’ report – at artfund.org/wellbeing. We found that 63% of people visited a gallery or museum specifically to de-stress, and that people who regularly visited reported a greater sense of satisfaction. As a passionate advocate of UK museums and galleries we have always believed that art can help us see, think and feel differently.
