More than 120,000 people visited Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art for a special 11-week exhibition of the works of Norman Rockwell.

The Bentonville museum says attendance for the exhibition topped visitor numbers from 12 other cities where the exhibition has already been shown, including Sacramento, Calif.; Detroit, Raleigh, N.C.; and Orlando, Fla.

General admission to Crystal Bridges is free, but the Rockwell exhibition included a $12 admission fee for adults.

On June 29, the museum will open an exhibition entitled "Angels and Tomboys," which focuses on girlhood in 19th century American art.
