Da Vinci Science Center Extends Single-Day Visitation Mark
The Da Vinci Science Center (DSC) extended its single-day paid visitation record again on Monday with 1,055 visitors.
Monday’s total topped the record set on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, with 1,040 paid visitors. The most recent record highs can be credited to the intersection of a three-day holiday weekend while the appearance of the world-renowned Bodies Revealed exhibition enters its final weeks, said Troy A. Thrash, the Da Vinci Science Center’s Executive Director and CEO.
Saturday’s total topped the 1,013 paid Center visitors on Jan. 5, 2013, as the organization held its Ice Cream Wars 5.0 contest. The Center also broke the record on consecutive days with 990 visitors on Dec. 28, 2012, and 981 visitors on Dec. 27, 2012, after its prior record stood for nearly seven years.
The Da Vinci Science Center has announced that it has extended the appearance of Bodies Revealed through Feb. 18, 2013. Bodies Revealed is the first of two blockbuster visitor experiences presented by St. Luke’s University Health Network as part of the Da Vinci Science Center’s Year of the Human Body project. Attracting more than 15 million visitors in locations across the United States and around the world, Bodies Revealed takes visitors on a mesmerizing three-dimensional tour of the human body with 11 full anatomical specimens and 180 additional pieces. It offers an up-close look inside the body’s major systems. Bodies Revealed is produced by Premier Exhibitions of Atlanta, Ga.
