Based on quarterly attendance statistics, the number of people who visited the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is down 23% in the third quarter of 2015-2016 compared to the first half of the fiscal year. The article states that the museum generated 1.8 million dollars in ticket, membership and rental revenue, considerably lower than the 37.5 million dollars in annual total expenses.
Museum official state that the drop is due to seasonal fluctuations. “Q1 and Q2 included peak tourism summer months,” wrote CMHR media relations manager Maureen Fitzhenry in an email. “The fall and winter months are typically slower for tourism and visitation here.”
