Coventry Transport Museum has announced a record number of visitors passing through its doors for the third year running during 2008-9.
Helped by the popular Doctor Who exhibition, which attracted over 10,000 visitors during its first 19 days of opening, numbers reached a massive 367,485 between April 1 2008 and March 31 2009.
"There is always something new to see at the Museum, so we’re not surprised that people just keep on coming back and bringing their family and friends," said the Museum's Chief Executive, Gary Hall.
"We have the Doctor Who exhibition here until November and an exciting programme of events and temporary exhibitions planned for the rest of this year and into 2010, so we’re confident that more and more people will visit over the coming year.”
The Museum prides itself on constantly changing its displays and hosting exciting events and temporary exhibitions. In the last year it held six weeks of activities during the summer, hosted an inaugural Craft Fair, launched the impressive Custom Bikes exhibition and helped the Midland Vehicle Preservation Society celebrate their 40th anniversary.
