In recent years, cultural heritage organisations, and espe- cially museums, express a high level of interest in the adoption of new technologies in various aspects of their activities. In this context, this research aims to investigate the factors that influence the decision of museums regarding the adoption of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and to highlight the role of internal and external environment in the diffusion of technological innovations.
We present, thereby, the results of our research conducted in the form of a ques- tionnaire completed by 43 Greek cultural organisations, so as to ex- amine their innovation strategy. As a result, we define the extent to which museum’s decisions on technology adoption are influenced by the environment in which they operate the characteristics of the organisation and the adopted technology itself.
