WASHINGTON (AP) — Museums across the country are reporting significant financial stress for the second year in a row, while attendance continued to increase in many locations last year.

A survey of nearly 400 institutions by the American Association of Museums shows more than 70 percent were facing economic troubles in 2010. Most museums saw a reduction in funding, especially government and corporate support. The survey is to be released Monday.

The survey shows financial stress was greatest for museums in the mid-Atlantic states and less severe in the country's midsection.

Meanwhile, half the museums in the survey reported increased attendance. That was especially true for museums in western states. Museums in the Southeast were least likely to be seeing more visitors.
