2012 has been a milestone year for the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre (CFDC) in Morden.
The Centre saw attendance exceed the 100,000 visitor threshold over the past 15 years since it started keeping attendance records.
Since 1997 the CFDC has had 107,285 visitors from the province, all over Canada and the world.
On average about 18 percent of visitors came from the Pembina Valley region, 42 percent come from Winnipeg and the remaining 40 percent come from the rest of the province, the country and internationally.
Acting executive director Peter Cantelon says the CFDC is one of the standout museums in Manitoba and an engine of tourism investment in Morden, the region and the province..
Visitors to the museum have brought about $6.5 million into the local economy.
