Many small people round the country will be counting the days till 28 March.
Many larger ones too, as that's the day the much anticipated Dr Who exhibition opens at Kelvingrove in Glasgow.
Advance ticket sales for the event suggest it's going to hugely popular, perhaps even topping the Kylie Minogue exhibition which brought in 165,000 visitors.
But already there are murmurings of disaproval from those who feel it's inappropriate fare for a museum.
And not just elderly board members either.
A colleague of mine - a youngish dad - was complaining that exhibitions like this have no place in a museum like Kelvingrove.
He wanted gravitas and educational displays, he said, not cybermen and Kylie's pants.
But in the same breath, he admitted his wife and three children were counting the days till they could go.
These are unashamedly populist exhibitions, and I appreciate not to everyone's tastes, but our museums can't really afford to be prissy about finding ways to draw new visitors in.
Figures released last week by ALVA - the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions - showed a 35 per cent drop in visitors to Kelvingrove in 2008, and declining numbers at many other flagship attractions.
And despite Kelvingrove's argument that this is simply a levelling out of the record numbers achieved post-refurbishment, the fear is that the recession is affecting visitors.
(And since many London attractions noted an upturn in the same period, the suggestion is that many foreign visitors are simply curtailing their trips to the UK).
There are still elements of Kelvingrove post-refurbishment which need work.
While the cross-collaboration of some of the displays is ambitious, they could provide just a little more basic information about the artefacts.
Sometimes, a simple identification label isn't enough.
But generally, it's a livelier place and if a few Cybermen can further boost its visitor numbers, who's complaining.
