Ms Hemsley said an estimated 70 per cent of visitors had been local and 30 per cent had been from out of town. People had travelled from Melbourne, Sydney and Ballarat specifically to see MAMA.
Ms Hemsley said MAMA had hosted almost 2500 students in October – more than the former gallery hosted in its entire last year.
"To see so many young people visiting MAMA has been extremely rewarding," she said.
AlburyCity Mayor Henk van de Ven said the crowd numbers were outstanding and urged residents to take their summer holiday visitors to MAMA.
"I thank all the MAMA staff for their hard work and dedication to making this new art museum a success for our community," Cr van de Ven said.
