The role of emotions in museums: implications for visitors’ segmentation and satisfaction In recent years, in museums an increasing market-oriented approach has been developed. In this context, the visitors’ satisfaction has been recognized as a key element in gaining an advantage over competitors. This study investigates whether emotions on visitors’ experience, whether emotions can be considered as a suitable variable to segment visitors at a museum. Further, it analyses whether emotions influence visitors’ satisfaction, and whether this depends on socio-demographic characteristics or not. A structured questionnaire was developed and data were collected at the National Museum of Archaeology in Cagliari in Sardinia (Italy) via 487 face-to-face interviews. Hierarchical and non-hierarchical cluster analysis and a series of chi-squared tests were run for the purpose of the study.
Keywords: Emotions, segmentation, satisfaction, experience, museums, cluster analysis.
