Although my family has had a summer home in the area for 40 years, this is the first time I have visited this museum. What a revelation! I was only aware of Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post covers, but his life and his artistry were much, much more. There was an excellent and captivating documentary film downstairs in the room that...

The museum, which wasn't on our TO DO list, was a highlight of a recent weekend trip to the Berkshires. It's incredibly well curated and the audio tour is a must. We have a new appreciation for Norman Rockwell and his contributions to American culture and history.

The first time I visited NRM was when I was a young lad of about 12 years old and I will never forget it, it made such an impression on me, just as Norman Rockwell's illustrations have made an impression on me all my life. Mr. Rockwell is a hero and mentor to all American artists, so as an artist... More

The Norman Rockwell Museum is well worth the trip. The museum's main gallery houses generations of Rockwell's work which give a fascinating view into his process and development -- sketches, photographs that provided the basis for characters in his paintings, works that never made it into print. Don't miss the lower level with a video about his life and work,... More

We had some doubts about taking some out of town guests to the Norman Rockwell Museum, but the doubts disappeared shortly after we arrived. All eyes were glued to the exhibit of Saturday Evening Post covers. The other exhibits and studio were also enjoyable.

My family (with a 7-year old and a 9-year old) visited for a couple of hours. I wasn't sure how the kids would do at an art museum. However, the museum offered a scavenger hunt, which my daughter really enjoyed. Rockwell's paintings often included humor, so it was fun seeing my kids pick up on that and recognize paintings. The...

This was a gem. Great info on Norman Rockwell. Many of his illustrations and much information about his life. Good video presentation. Modern museum and nice grounds. You can also go in his studio. Very nice gift shop and restaurant on the grounds. We went late Monday afternoon and the place was packed! We decided to wait and come back... More

I gave this a 4 rating because my husband thought it was wonderful but he is a Norman Rockwell fan. I am not and so it was just OK for me. Plenty of parking easy access and the museum is well laid out. Don't forget to visit his studio. I also gave it a 4 rating because of an unusual... More

Norman Rockwell modestly called himself an illustrator and denied that he was an artist. This Museum sends a different message. It is a beautiful homage to an outstanding artist who, very much against the grain of the 20th-century art establishment, liked to tell human stories in elaborately detailed images. The Museum, a couple of miles west of Stockbridge, displays all... More

Norman Rockwell, an American artist and icon, lived in this loverly part of New England for many years. His art reflects the people and the culture in America. The Museum is a lovely spot for anyone anytime. If you happen to get a rainy day it's the perfect place to spend the day and enjoying all the famous covers from... More
