If you have never visited this museum and seen the paintings and studio of Rockwell, this is a must. Plus the grounds are superb with a wonderful view, and a lovely walk. Gift shop is great too for getting lots of beautifully done Norman Rockwell memorabilia.

It's a very rare instance when you get the see the pulse of an entire country over the last 80 years so neatly illustrated, but with Rockwells Post Magazine cover collection, you feel the decades flowing by. All of America's troubles and triumphs, what our hearts were feeling, what our heads were thinking, what our mouths were saying... all on... More

for Norman Rockwell's work. We had probably the best docent I've ever encountered in a museum. She kept her tour short and essentially told us what to look for in his work rather than didactically lecturing the group. Similarly, we met a security guard who was very knowledgeable about Rockwell and the museum's collection. These wonderful folks helped us look... More

A time long, long ago. Life was so much simpler then. Values were different. Neighors truly cared about each other. The flowers smelled better.

The curator of the gallery was super nice and gave us free tickets to an event on the next evening. Several of his most famous works are hanging here including the Four Freedoms. There are also rotating exhibits. It's smallish but definitely worth visiting.

What a lovely art exhibit. I did not realize the long span of Norman Rockwell's career. I thought it was great that there was a woman who gave a 1/2 hour gallery talk about the artist's life, how he used his neighbors as models for his illustrations, his most famous work - The 4 Freedoms, and discussion on some other...

The "gallery talk" was very informative and gave some great insight into Rockwell's influences and work.

Amazing and heart-warming collection of Norman Rockwell's work, arranged by historical eras. The admission price is very reasonable, the movie is interesting, and the children earn a prize for locating 10 key works by Rockwell. Do not point at the pictures, as the overbearing guard will follow you like a hound and reprimand you.

I was pleasantly surprise by the extensive collection of Norman Rockwell (NR) in this museum. The museum is unique in its presentation of some of the paintings, it displays NR's painting progression from sketches...trial paintings... to final painting. As others reviewer's have mentioned, downstairs you will see 40 years of NR's work for the Saturday Evening Post. In the last... More
