This study was carried to identify level of electronic readiness in museums by assessing the uses of electronic readiness provision in museum services, and also to determine the factors responsible for ineffective use of electronic readiness in museums. Descriptive survey research was used for this study. Total enumeration sampling technique was adopted for the sampling procedure. This was chosen because of the small number of number of population of professional museum staff involved which is put at 784 as at 2012. Questionnaires were distributed to museum professionals at 16 museums, located in the South-West and North –Central geo-political zones of Nigeria to collect for the study. Questionnaires administered, the data collected were analysed with the use of statistics depicting the mean and standard deviation.
