    Due to the Corona crisis, almost all cultural heritage institutions have seen a huge decline in their visitor numbers; museums as well as galleries, archives, and libraries. This decline relates to all types of visitors and users, but especially to adults and in many cases, it amounts to 50% or more. Even after restrictions were lifted, audiences did not return immediately, and the expectations for the future are not very hopeful.
