How much have Philadelphia museums increased their activity on video and social media since we published our last report? Are there any new innovations on YouTube? How do they stack up to New York or Los Angeles? In at least one area, Philadelphia is outflanking LA.

Philadelphia Museums: 2014 Video and Social Media Rankings is an expanded, 40-page report that gives you a snapshot of the video and social media performance of 39 metro-area museums, gardens, libraries, and zoos.

In March 2014, we pulled stats on the number of video views, photos, and tweets associated with all of these museums during a 24-hour period and ranked every museum that we surveyed.

Keep scrolling to see the more than 30 tables and statistics; the categories for our Top 25, Top 20, Top 15, and Top 10 video rankings; and which museums are included. You can buy the report for $48.00 at our shop:
