Nice visit to museum during a rainy day

You can do the entire museum in under two hours and worth the trip. It is amazing how prolific he was. There is one section in the museum that show every Saturday Evening Post cover (over 300) and many brought back memories. Some of the pictures jump off the paper they almost look like photographs. There are a couple of... More

I'm not a fan of Norman Rockwell, so why did I visit? They had a great exhibit of Roz Chast cartoons (till Oct. 26,2015) and I am a fan of her. The museum has beautiful grounds and a cafe catered by the Red Lion Inn, so the sandwich was quite good. The museum is located a little ways from I-90.

We arrived after a thunderstorm and the grounds looked fresh with that wonderful scent that can only be found in the countryside. We first attended the gallery talk and then viewed the exhibition. The works of Norman Rockwell are spectacular and the layout and appearance of the gallery is exceptional, at no point do you feel pressured or pushed to... More

You can probably see this whole museum in two hours or less, so it's nice to pair up with one of the other local sites (like Chesterwood or the Edith Wharton house--you can get a discount if you do that too). We spent about 2-3 hours there and were able to see and read everything. Also did a short tour... More

We enjoyed this small museum. A docent talk introduced us to Norman Rockwell's process and style and talked about a few of the pieces. We were impressed with the collection, description of his process and the lovely grounds. The cafe was a nice lunch stop with a beautiful view of the grounds. Be sure to walk around outside to his...

The Norman Rockwell museum is tucked away in a secluded private area of Stockbridge, Mass. The grounds are well kept and the museum is clean, modern and modest. To get the most out of your visit wait for one of the guides to give you a historical detailed speech on some of the little known facts about Norman Rockwell and... More

The museum was very interesting but small. I loved it but the price is far over the price you pay to visit most of the most best museums arround the world. I know they probably dont have any help from the government but i have visited lot of private museums before and the prices were not so exagerated.

If you ever enjoyed Norman Rockwell's work a visit to the museum is a must. It seems like all of his most famous works, including the 4 freedoms on exhibit here. In addition the annotations next to the paintings give the backstory on each of them which makes them come alive even more. The docents are very knowledgeable and hospitable.
