The Australian Bureau of Statistics has launched its newest publication, the Year Book Australia 2001.
It’s full of amazing facts and figures about every aspect of Australian life.
Here’s one topic that caught my eye…
At the end of June 2000 there were 2,049 museum establishments comprising 249 art museums/galleries, 411 historic properties and 1389 other museums (e.g social history, natural history and science museums).
The majority of these establishments (58%) were operated on a volunteer basis!
