The Scientology Information Center Surpasses 50,000 Visitors

This week the Scientology Information Center located in downtown Clearwater announced the 50,000th guest has crossed the threshold and toured the Center.

Approaching its 5 year anniversary, since July 11, 2015, the Scientology Information Center has hosted visitors from all over the world, to learn about Dianetics, Scientology and the Church’s humanitarian activities. Operated by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, the Center features a full biographical display illuminating the life and legacy of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard: from his childhood to his career as an author, as well as his revolutionary body of work in establishing and defining the religion itself.

The Center has also hosted over 150 different events ranging from honoring winners of the Presidential Service Award, acknowledging community activists mentoring youth, music concerts with genres such as Broadway, opera, classical, dance performances, as well as old-time radio-styled theatrical presentations.

Inside the Center, Clearwater residents and visitors to the city’s downtown reviewed informational displays containing some 400 documentary videos covering:

  • The fundamentals of Dianetics and Scientology, including the core principles and beliefs,
  • The ever-expanding network of Scientology Churches and groups and the global scope of Scientology as a religious movement, and
  • The panoply of humanitarian programs the Church sponsors, now the hallmark of the Church the world over.

“In addition to the videos and panels available in the Center, guests can grab a cup of coffee, sit down and ask any questions they may have.” said Amber Skjelset, the Center’s manager. “Just this week, in addition to locals, people visited from Poland, Germany, Canada and all over the United States while vacationing in Clearwater. They all come from different religious backgrounds and are curious about Scientology and its principles.”
