Sinking ship: GulfQuest attendance 93% below original projections

(WPMI) 2017 GulfQuest numbers down even further from 2016

According to GulfQuest Executive Director Brent Beall, there were 20,000 visitors to the museum from September 2017 to September 2018, not including those who attended special events at the facility.

Of that 20,000, half were students brought on school trips.

From September 2016 to September 2017 the facility saw 80,000 visitors, and more than approximately 73,000 visitors the first year it was open (Sept 2015-Sept 2016.)

All of these numbers are significantly less than nearly 300,000 yearly visitors originally projected to visit the city's $62 million facility.

The Museum is currently open Tues-Sun.
