A more recent data collection which focuses solely on government funding for cultural activities, found that the Australian Government provided $47.2m to Art galleries and a further $209.5m to Other museums in 2006-07. State and territory governments contributed a total of $498.2m to Art galleries and Other museums. While local governments also provide considerable cultural funding, there is no recent data available on the specific amounts committed to museums.
It should be noted that the government funding collection adopted a broader definition of art galleries and other museums, therefore its data are not directly comparable to those obtained from the Survey of Museums.
