Adolescents undoubtedly represent the future generation of adults who will be responsible for the preservation and management of heritage at local and national levels. It is essential to understand how to motivate and satisfy adolescents when visiting museums in their communities and beyond. A self-administered survey was conducted in 2016 with 360 adolescents who visited the Abgineh Museum of Tehran, Iran. Using descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlation analysis and multiple linear regression analysis were used to interpret the findings, offering new insights into the subject. The study results suggest that travel and tourism companions influence adolescents’ motivations and satisfaction to visit museums.
