Rotunda Museum in Scarborough

The survey is aimed at making Scarborough Museums Trust’s three venues – the Rotunda Museum near the seafront and Scarborough Art Gallery and Woodend, both in The Crescent – more relevant to the Borough of Scarborough and its residents.

Open to adults aged 16 or over, it asks participants who already visit the three venues to explain why, and what they would like to see change. Those who don't visit the venues are asked what would encourage them to do so.

Andrew Clay, chief executive of Scarborough Museums Trust, said: “The Rotunda, Art Gallery and Woodend are part of the fabric of Scarborough and the wider Borough.
