Donations to the museum were up during the exhibition
Visitors to an exhibition by the graffiti artist Banksy have raised more than £45,000 in museum donations.
At least 300,000 people queued for up to six hours over the past 12 weeks to see Banksy v Bristol Museum.
The museum said that it had made more than four times the usual amount in donations taking in what they would usually expect during a whole year.
Banksy charged Bristol City Council £1 for the exhibition on the condition CCTV footage of him was destroyed.
The show featured 100 artworks, 78 of them new, including a fish finger swimming around a goldfish bowl and Banksy's own take on classical art.
Banksy is also said to have sneaked into the museum a few times during the night to make additions to artworks.
A portrait of Michael Jackson opening the door of a fairytale house to Hansel and Gretel was added after the singer's death.
James Stevenson, 24, who queued for five-and-a-half hours to see the show, said it was "well worth the wait".
"The queues are huge but I suppose it's part of the experience," he added.
"Banksy is the artist of a generation. His work is amazing but it also has a powerful message about society.
"My favourite has to be the riot police running hand in hand through a field of flowers."
