Portland Science Center shutting its doors
PORTLAND (WGME) – A Portland attraction in the heart of the Old Port is shutting its doors.
The owner of the Portland Science Center confirms the business will close for good.
Several employees of local businesses along Commercial Street say they've been to the science center for one exhibit or another.
They say they're sad to hear the news and say the science center was a unique, welcomed business in the Old Port.
The Portland Science Center has been home to exhibits such as Titanic, Body World and most recently Planet Shark. It's unclear at this time why the business is shutting down.
Employees at the Porthole, which is located across from the business, say they were frequent visitors of the Portland Science Center and things won't be the same once they've officially shut their doors.
