Slow news day


Museums make the front page of 24 heures.

According to the press release (and the article) the most popular museums were the Science centre, the CCA, and something called Cité Historia, that I previously did not know existed.

To clarify the press release (and the article), while the total number of people who went was a new record (125,153), it represented a 5% increase from last year. What they fail to mention, and probably weren't aware of, either (those darn arts reporters, always asking the tough questions) that there was also a 10% increase in the number of museums taking part (from 30 to 33). So the average number of people per museum dropped to 3,792 from over 4K, or a drop of 5%. And last year, they had increased total attendance from the previous year by 25%.

Also, someone should look into how they directed people, last year's most popular museums were the Musée des beaux-arts, the Biodôme, and the Biosphère. I never would have guessed that there would be so much churn in the most popular museums in town.
