The National Media Museum commissioned Emma King Consultancy to evaluate the impact of its Scooby-Doo-themed half term activities during October and November 2012.
The museum put on a range of activities featuring the popular children's cartoon character, aimed at families with children aged 7-11. Staff wanted to find out how effective the Scooby-Doo brand was in attracting visitors to the museum and engaging people with activities, and particularly to gain a better understanding of the outcomes for visitors from getting involved.
Emma conducted two days of interviews with visitors during half-term and submitted a report to the museum based on the interview data. The museum will use the report to help with planning for future activities and events aimed at this audience.
