This turned out to be a highlight of trip to Berkshires. Museum is located in pleasant and pristine setting. A bit steep on price but worth it. Rockwell was surprisingly prolific and a gifted storyteller. What a terrific reflection of America from the 1910s to 60s. Make sure to check out Saturday Evening Post covers downstairs and the accompanying approx.... More

The Norman Rockwell museum was an experience not to be missed. The many paintings on display , the interactive videos ,as well as the very informative docent all made the visit a rich and enjoyable exposure to the life and works of Mr. Rockwell. His paintings over a 50 year period are not only nostalgic , but uplifting and joyful... More

I really didn't know much about Norman Rockwell, other than being able to recognize his pictures. I found this museum very informative. My kids also really loved it. It's not a stuffy museum at all...the kids are very welcome there. There is a big downstairs classroom with art supplies for the kids to draw as well.

Norman Rockwell painted American life and culture for almost 50 years and his images of America, even though they were for the American audience, reached us in England. We could not visit Stockbridge and not visit the Norman Rockwell Museum; we spent over 3 hours there. The museum is about 2 miles from town and is situated in extensive grounds... More

I visited this museum 30 years ago when it was small and in town. The enlargement and upgrade is nice and tastefully accomplished. I visited with my adult daughter who was fascinated by the entire exhibit. The displays definitely brought "Americana" to life for her.

I visited the museum in the early 90's and this is the first time I've been back. It's a different museum, now situated in a purpose-built, single-storey, neoclassical gallery set in beautiful rolling countryside just outside Stockbridge. The gallery is fairly small, but there's enough to hold the attention for two or three hours, especially as Rockwell's paintings are so... More

We spent several hours pouring over the Saturday Evening Post covers, the original art and watching the short film. I have been a fan of Norman Rockwell's since I was a little girl and loved introducing my children to his art upclose and personal.

Thank you for choosing a visit to the museum as a birthday gift! I'm glad you enjoyed Norman Rockwell's work and that you also had an opportunity to tour the Harvey Dunn exhibit. Harvey Dunn was a contemporary of Norman Rockwell, and Mr. Dunn taught many students who became successful illustrators as well as friends with Mr. Rockwell. When Norman... More
