The Maryland Gazette reveals “Some hot Baltimore tourist attractions are deep in red ink” including Geppi’s Entertainment Museum which just opened in September.
Several Baltimore tourist attractions are on such shaky fiscal footing that they could collapse if conditions do not improve.
Promotional efforts are not drawing enough visitors to the Maryland Zoo, Sports Legends at Camden Yards and Geppiâs Entertainment Museum to meet expenses, state officials and a private museum operator told the Board of Public Works last week.
[snip]ââOther than a game day, weâre in a landlocked position,â? said Steve Geppi, a comic book tycoon who owns Geppiâs Entertainment Museum, which features pop culture exhibits and is on the second floor of Camden Station, above Sports Legends.
Seventy-five thousand people visited the museum in its inaugural year, one-third the projected number.
Declining attendance for Orioles games at the stadium next door are also blamed.
Seriously, if you are in the area and don’t go to the Geppi museum, you are missing out on one of the most amazing places for comics fans, history buffs and pop culture junkies in general. We went in September and were flabbergasted.
