Content Management Systems Among Swedish Museums

6th April 2020

I recently “visited some” museum websites to determinate which content management system or backend that powers them. Now I have published my dataset with over 370 Swedish museum websites (excluding those museums who uses central CMS solutions (such as or municipality websites)).

Bar chart

Almost two thirds are powered by WordPress (general CMS marketshare estimated between 35-50%). Drupal, SiteVision, and Joomla! comes there after all powering less than a dozen sites.

This homogeneous situation could have interesting applications but I will save those thoughts for a future post. For now you can get the dataset and read more about it over at Figshare. It's licensed under CC0.
