'. . . it makes an important contribution to the dissemination of methodologies to assess the impact of tourist attractions and to the understanding of the potential contribution of comparable tourist attractions to regional development.' -- David Bradley, Northern Economic Review
'The book will be of interest to applied economists, those interested in recreation and its employment impact, and in museums and their management. It should form an invaluable reference test for researchers assessing the employment impact of museums. The study blends theory and empiricism, economics and management, description and analysis, quantification and qualitative observations into a cocktail which is enjoyable to read, which will provide inspiration for future studies, and a work which should occupy a position as a standard reference area of recreational economics for years to come.' -- K.G. Willis, Journal of Environmental Planning and Management
'This work provides a much needed addition to existing empirical research in the field of economic impact analysis.' -- Andrew Feist, The Economic Journal
'Anyone involved in comparable attractions, either directly or indirectly or induced, should find the book a fascinating read.' -- Jeremie Logie, Tourism
'This study is useful and brings into focus the necessity for more reliable work on tourism products and their impact on the local economy.' -- Judy White, University of Birmingham, UK
