For museums that are outside metropolitan areas, it is common to forgo ticket admissions to attract visitors. When times are tough, museums have to exploit their resources or bond with art galleries to host original events to attract visitors. As most museum visitors are from a 50mile radius, Directors often have to create events of community interest as well as have guards and staff be more helping and welcoming to visitors.
