ABSTRACT

The museum is one of the cultural facilities provided as a public service which has multicultural characteristics. It provides cultural diversity, cultural exchange within society, educational experience, and a place for local residents to rest. Regional museums make an effort to differentiate themselves from other existing museums by providing the citizens with an image of a culturally familiar city. In order to create such an image, they rigorously search for solutions for effective management of museums. This study focuses on factors considered for effective management of the museum that respond to the cultural needs of local residents. For example, we investigate the priorities for effective management of a museum which is opened in 2011, such as appropriate admission fees, opinions on extending operating hours, cultural experience programs, and the creation of a positive city image. As a result, an updated program and contents, level of exhibition, accessibility of the museum, and size and type of exhibition are suggested as significant factors for effective management of the museum. Our study proposed that 1,803 won would be a reasonable admission fee for adults, and it could be a guideline for both newly opening and existing museums considering charging admission fees. The study results emphasize the importance of families visiting the museum during the weekends and the likelihood of having extended opening hours. Thus, the study found that the regional museum could play a crucial role in improving the overall city image.
