The Cleveland Museum of Art saw its highest summer attendance numbers on record thanks to the world-renowned and mega-popular Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors touring exhibit.

Today, the museum revealed that from July 1 through Sept. 30, more than 300,000 people came through their doors. This is more than double that of last year's numbers. The exhibit brought in more than 120,000 visitors all on its own, attracting people from all 50 states and all over the world. 

These numbers may come as no surprise to those who tried to get tickets throughout the months-long run, as most days were sold out. In case you weren't able to score tickets to the Infinity Mirrors madness, you can take a look at what you missed right here.

The Cleveland area also saw record breaking numbers of visitors in 2017, as reported by Destination Cleveland yesterday. This summer's CMA totals alone should help boost 2018's visitor numbers as well.
