Internet use as a factor in accessing cultural heritage sites

Figure 12, also based on Special Eurobarometer 466, shows the main reasons why people do not visit cultural heritage sites − lack of interest, time, information, choice, or money, and the poor quality or remote location of the sites (or events). Interestingly, people who use the internet daily are the most likely to mention lack of information as a reason for not attending cultural heritage events or visiting cultural heritage sites. They are by far the most likely to mention lack of time to visit sites or attend events. It seems that access to the internet and its use on a daily basis is no guarantee of access to information on museums, archaeological sites, cultural heritage events and festivals, although this information is widely available online.
