Looking for the TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index?

The TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index is published annually in June by collaboration between the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and the Economics Practice at AECOM.

This authoritative, calendar-year study shares attendance numbers for the world's top theme parks, waterparks and museums, accompanied by expert analysis. The 2019 edition will be released in mid-June 2020; meanwhile, the 2018 edition and all prior editions back to 2006 are available freely on the TEA and AECOM websites. #TEAthemeindex

Since 2006, TEA and AECOM have collaborated to produce and publish the annual TEA/AECOM Theme Index and make the report available free as a resource and reference for business and education. It was expanded to include the Museum Index in 2012.

The TEA/AECOM Theme Index and Museum Index is a definitive and widely cited global resource benefiting the international attractions industry and many other sectors including financial, real estate, education, hospitality, retail, travel and tourism. It is published in PDF format in English and Chinese language versions, on the TEA and AECOM websites, and in a limited print edition. It is a vital reference for the media.
