Art about the american experience -- the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists. Connect and reflect on the story of America through the eyes of American artists. The diverse collection of original American masterpieces includes a mix of contemporary Native American art alongside traditional bronze sculptures, landscape paintings and other works that embody America and the migration west. Kids and teens 17 and under are always free to The Rockwell -- specialized Art Hunts and our Family Exploration Studio make our museum the perfect destination for all ages. The Rockwell is named for our founding collectors, Bob and Hertha Rockwell, local business owners who amassed an incredible collection of American art and artifacts.

Great museum with lots of kid-friendly exhibits and events. Also a stellar gift shop for unique gift ideas and purchases. I've yet to get to the rooftop music events in the summer, but I often hear them as I walk by and they sound great!

If you're interested in North American artists and arts through history, this is a very decent museum. They are part of Smithsonian network so entrance fee is pretty much a donation. They have great art and for kids a scavenger hunt is available so they...More

This is a small personal art museum of a Corning business owner. Only stop if you bought the combo ticket at the Glass Museum. Otherwise, pass it by!

As others mention, this is a small museum which can be seen in 1-2 hours. A very nice permanent collection of Art of the American West. Remington and Russell are well-represented, but also many other artists both before and after, including some interesting contemporary works....More
