DescriptionWe explored selected socio-demographic factors that influence the perception of constraints to art museum attendance among a sample of interested individuals who were currently not enjoying art museum visitation. Data from the Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA), a nationwide survey were used for this study. Using multivariate analysis of variance, we examined five main effects (gender, age, income, number of children, and place of residence) and all two-way interactions on two dimensions of constraints, internal and external. Our findings illustrated that perceived constraints to art museum visitation were a function of not only separate but also interactive effects of the sociodemographic factors. Implications for both constraints theory and practice are discussed.
