PORTLAND, Maine - A popular science centre that has attracted travelling exhibits to Maine's largest city is closing its doors.
The Portland Press Herald reports the Portland Science Center is shutting down after nearly three years on the city's waterfront. The centre has featured exhibits about subjects such as sharks, pirates and the Titanic.
The owner of the building where the centre had been located says the centre's Massachusetts owner, the Gold Group, has opted out of its lease. The centre's last exhibit was "Planet Shark," which opened in February and closed this month.
The centre was a for-profit business that hosted about two exhibits a year.
