In the city of Chicago there are countless museums dedicated to the education of the public on a variety of issues. In 2014, 107 random citizens of Chicago agreed to a survey that would describe and explain their relationship to these museums in the past year. These surveys were conducted using ambush survey methods on the streets of Chicago. Descriptive statistics show that there is not a strong statistical variance in the races, socioeconomic classes, or those who are more or less educated when it comes to museum attendance. Despite this general lack of statistic significance, this study brings to light some important social trends among Chicagoans.
