Great taste of Americana up close and personal! We had a guided tour and learned so much about the artist, his life, technique etc. Enjoyed every moment of it. Went with my 13 year old daughter and she was equally impressed, loved it.

As one who loves Norman Rockwell's work, it was a pleasure to see the icons of his work from inches away. This beautifully designed museum features many of the paintings made famous by Rockwell on his Saturday Evening Post covers, among others. Included are the famous "Four Freedoms," the "Ruby Bridges" painting done after school desegregation, and dozens of others... More

This was truly a memorable experience. Being a former art instructor, I knew most of the pieces in the museum but seeing them in person was inexplicable. I was overwhelmed with the detail in the actual paintings that you can not see in photos or reproductions. It was amazing!!! The only downfall was that Rockwell's studio was closed for the... More

It is what it says it is. We went to watch the 12 minute introductory film first. They have it in the downstairs room with all of the Rockwell Saturday Evening Post covers on the wall. People who want to hear the narration are at odds with people wo want to discuss and comment about what they are seeing on... More

No other artist represents American life like Rockwell. The museum is a delightful place to escape from the cold or heat. It has an incredible collection of art spanning the years of Rockwell's life. The room housing the Four Freedom's is beautiful. Don't miss the art created for the Saturday Evening Post displayed downstairs. Often there's a special exhibit. Today... More

We have been to the museum in warm and cold weather. Both trips have been worthwhile as the exhibits are frequently rotated. Excellent small group leaders. The surrounding area and scenery are really beautiful. Wonderful way to spend a day stepping back in time.

Perhaps we should have come later in the year when the artist's studio is open. Or perhaps it was a day when the staff was tired, but we got the feeling that it was all about them and not the visitors. We were quickly told about the gallery talks, but a post or listing in the lobby would have been... More

We enjoyed our visit reminiscing about Rockwell's magazine covers and the new exhibit of Hanna-Barbera cartoons.

We loved this museum. Even if you don't have an attraction to Norman Rockwell's work, you will learn a lot about America during his years of producing "Life" in America! It's a great place for kids to learn stuff that is not in the "History" books. We could have spent more than just a couple of hours there. The grounds... More

A very nice Museum to view an icon of the art world. Besides his paintings, also had an exhibition from Hanna Barbera which brought great memories.... We participated with the docent tour. She did a nice job equating Rockwell, the community and people and his art work. Suggest taking hour and a half for your visit. Do to the time... More
