CINCINNATI (AP) - A southwest Ohio museum center says it had nearly 1.5 million visits in 2015, the second-busiest year since the center opened in 1990.

The Cincinnati Museum Center at historic Union Terminal includes a Cincinnati history museum, a children’s museum and a museum of natural history and science.

Center officials credit special exhibitions and movies with boosting interest. Among the special attractions were exhibits with ancient mummies, works of art made with Lego bricks, and an original copy of the Declaration of Independence.

Movies at the five-story domed Omnimax theater included “D-Day: Normandy 1944” and “Journey into Space.”

The center closed the year with a record attendance month of nearly 224,000 visitors in December.

The center’s record of 1.487 million visits was set in 2009. The 2015 total was 1.449 million.
