The ABS (2011d) Cultural Funding by Government Survey found that in 2009-10 the Australian Government provided $90.1m to Art museums and a further $295.7m to Other museums and cultural heritage, while state and territory governments contributed $187.1m and $371.8m respectively. Local government also provided considerable funding to Art museums ($52.4m) and Other museums and cultural heritage ($47.4m).
It should be noted that the Cultural Funding by Government collection and the Survey of Museums have different scope and coverage, therefore data are not directly comparable between these surveys. For more information see (ABS, 2008c) Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications, 2008 (Second Edition) (cat. no. 4902.0).
