100,000 Visit Glasgow…

…which isn’t as surprising as it might seem because that is the number of people who have seen the Doctor Who Exhibition which opened 5 months ago at Kelvington Art Gallery and Museum – yet despite this success, there is still along way to go before the exhibition’s current home beats a previous record set by former guest star Kylie.

The Kylie Exhibition was held in 2007 and attracted an astounding 165,000 people in just four months – although organisers are keen to point out that a restricted number of visitors are allowed in the Doctor Who Exhibition at any one time due to space considerations.

Liz Cameron, Chair of Culture and Sport Glasgow, said: “From the minute we announced The Doctor Who Exhibition was coming to Kelvingrove, it became one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year.

“Fans of the show have been coming to see it again and again and absolutely love the experience.”

The Doctor Who Exhibition runs until 4 January 2010 – tickets are priced £7.50 for adults and £4.50 for children, while concessions of £18 for a family are available from or by calling 08444 815 816.
