Attendance Record

Autumn, 1997

THE Museum records annual visitor numbers for the period from August of one year to July of the next, to coincide with the University financial year. On this basis the year from 1996 to 1997 was a record year in every respect. It had the largest ever yearly attendance at 35,744 visitors, the largest monthly total of 5,530 which occurred in July, and the largest daily figure of 612 people, admitted during four hours on the afternoon of the 4th Saturday in July. However, even these figures appear to be vulnerable: the record monthly total has already been exceeded in August of the current year.
