According to the 1999-2000 Survey of Museums, museums held a total of 62 million artefacts, artworks and museum objects. Of these, about 2% were held by Art museums and galleries, 4% by Historic properties and 94% by Museums not elsewhere classified. The 78 largest museums (those which had employment of 100 or more persons) held 59% of these 62 million objects. Approximately 16% of the objects were on display, although this varied by the size of the museum, with the 78 largest museums having only 2% on display.
