Academy Museum Had 700K Visitors in First Year
The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures reported more than 700,000 visitors in its first year, through Sep. It's hard to put that in context because of the pandemic. The figure tops 2021 head counts for LACMA (621,000) and the Getty Center (508,000). Those statistics are earlier in the pandemic and include periods of closure.
Before COVID, the Broad reported over 820,000 visitors in its inaugural year (2015–2016).
However, Louvre World would be even better if a roller coaster were added to IM Pei's pyramid and a boat ride were added to Metland's Koch Plaza fountains.
Quite seriously, Louvre World to me was so excessive (or overbearing), it was like being in a room with a woman who thinks because a little perfume smells good, being drenched in it will be even better.
If CA museums are trying to buoy their collections of Black masters, this should impress.
Slightly south of USD 5 million.
