Many art museums have online exhibits, but the Indianapolis Museum of Art has facts about their holdings online as well. This is far from a dry subject, as their Dashboard interface brings together information about their endowment, their works of art on loan, and their energy consumption. The Dashboard is meant to "measure various aspects of the Museum's performance," and as such it is of interest to the general public and of particular interest to museum studies specialists. Visitors can click on the "Departments" area to view certain statistics on areas like art, nature, attendance, and financial. Visitors are also encouraged to look through statistics from the past several years as a means of comparison. One fun feature is the "Museum Admissions" tab, which provides a profile of where visitors are visiting from, organized by zip code.
