Packed with his wonderful work, plus a great little video, good introductory speakers (free). Plus his Stockbridge painting workshop. We loved everything except the cafe which was basically in a marquee area and not very warm:(

This is a great collection of Rockwell’s work! You see nearly 2000 original published works, so you get to see what his paintings were used for. They are all in chronological order so you get to see works from around 1910 to 1976. The gift...More

There’s a nice NR museum in Massachusetts. Unless you are a huge NR fan, skip the VT version. It was basically covers of the Saturday Evening Post and Boys Life magazines with no other information. Sad to say, but we learned little. I would have...More

Beside very friendly and devoted staff this museum teaches an American history. Norman Rockwell's illustrations shows how much each day of his life was effecting his soul and his art. Worth to visit!

Museum is not really the right word, someone collected memorabilia and has copies of prints of Norman Rockwell’s work. Skip this at all costs. His real museum is in Mass.
