Da Vinci Science Center Breaks Single-Day Visitation Record Again
The Da Vinci Science Center (DSC) broke its single-day paid attendance record for the fourth time in less than 30 days on Saturday with 1,040 visitors.
The new record-breaking total comes as a three-day holiday weekend begins and the world-renowned Bodies Revealed exhibition enters the final weeks of its Da Vinci Science Center appearance. Saturday’s total topped the 1,013 paid visitors received on Jan. 5, 2013, as the Center held its Ice Cream Wars 5.0 event. The Center also set new highs on consecutive days, with 990 paid visitors on Dec. 28, 2012, and 981 paid visitors on Dec. 27, 2012. The single-day record prior to Dec. 2012 had stood for nearly seven years.
The Da Vinci Science Center has announced that it will extend the appearance of the Bodies Revealed exhibition through Feb. 18, 2013, and added extra visitor hours during the exhibition’s final week.
Tickets are $21.95 per person, and $8.95 for Center members. Tickets can be purchased at the Center while supplies last and on the web at www.davincisciencecenter.org/tickets.
