EXPECTED visitor numbers to Malaga’s Pompidou Centre have been massively overestimated.
According to the city’s Culture Councillor, Gemma del Corral, data suggests 28% fewer people will have visited the landmark attraction by the end of this year than initially hoped for.
The city now expects only 180,000 to visit, 70,000 less than the 250,000 touted for the year by officials ahead of its opening in March 2015.
Numbers for Malaga’s Russian Art Museum, also opened in 2015, were similarly down on predictions.
A total of 95,000 people is expected to visit by the end of the year, instead of the 150,000 forecast.
Corral said that the disappointing figures mean the centres have missed out on a possible €944,000 in revenue.
