LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11, 2015 /satPRnews.com/ — “Dead Sea Scrolls: The Exhibition” ended a successful run as one of the highest attended traveling exhibitions in California Science Center history on Monday, September 7, 2015, after a full week of sold out crowds. Lines wrapped around the Science Center building on Saturday, and guests arrived before 6 am in hopes of getting the last tickets available without a reservation for a small time slot in the afternoon. Extended hours were offered the last three weekends the exhibit was open, and sold out well in advance for each day the late hours were available.Compare the past posts on Dead Sea Scrolls exhibitions here, here, here, here, here, here, here,
“We are thrilled so many people were able to see this remarkable blend of science and history during its time with us,” said Jeffrey Rudolph, Science Center President and CEO. “The attendance exceeded our expectations, and it ranks with some of the most-visited exhibitions we have presented.”
The exhibition, featuring over 600 ancient artifacts, opened in March. It sold out most weekends during its six-month long stay, drawing both local crowds and out-of-state visitors.
