Exhibitors prepared for long lines of visitors

Saint Peter and the Vatican: The Legacy of the Popes runs Dec. 20 through April 18 at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, 1301 Western Ave.

Although Clear Channel Exhibitions won't say how many saw the show in Fort Lauderdale or Houston, it would say Fort Lauderdale "slightly exceeded" forecasts of 150,000 visitors. That means lines.

The tickets are timed at 15-minute intervals to space out crowds. It's best to go earlier in the day. The last month in both cities was very busy.

Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets: $18.50, $9.50 ages 3-12, $13.50 seniors. Museum member tickets: $12.50, $6.50 ages 3-12.

Groups: (15+ purchased in advance) $13.50, $6.50 ages 3-12. You can buy tickets by calling 287-7001 or toll-free (800) 733-2077, online at or at the box office.
