While visiting Sugar Shack take the opportunity of viewing the Norman Rockwell museum. He sure to check the event calendar for days when you can meet with models used in his paintings when Norman Rockwell resided in Arlington. There are prints of your favorite paintings

Best display of pictures with comments I've ever seen. It is obvious the Arlington Community and Norman Rockwell had a deep connection.

Having moved from its home in the old firehouse to the Sugar Shack some things have changed. There is a huge display of magazine covers produced by Rockwell as well as a gift shop area with prints, magnets, and other items.
