NR has always been my favorite. visiting the museum was on my bucket list and I was not disappointed. Very nice displays of many of his works. Nice grounds and visiting his studio was special. Nice gift shop but don't expect a lot of bargains. Definitely worth a visit. It can be really crowded when the tour buses are in.

The museum is not very large, but it was beautiful and extremely well maintained. Norman Rockwell's personal studio is on-site, and was my personal favorite exhibit!

We stopped at the Norman Rockwell Museum primarily because we were in the area. I grew up seeing his Saturday Evening Post covers. We figured why not visit? The museum is very well laid out. You can start off with a brief movie on Rockwell. All the walls in this room are covered with all the Saturday Evening Post covers... More

We had a beautiful fall day, colorful Berkshires countryside, to enjoy the museum and studio. We bought the combination ticket to this, The Mount, and Chesterwood, all worthwhile. The staff was friendly and the organization of the exhibits was informative (plenty of information, displays) without being overwhelming. We spent two hours which seemed about right, but you may need more... More

Stockbridge, Massachusetts, is ground zero for the Norman Rockwell Museum, his studio work shop and the famous nostalgic snowy Christmas street scene. Nestled on 36 acres in the Berkshires, the museum is home to five decades of original Saturday Evening Post covers including the 1916 first cover, Boy with Baby Carriage. A grand look back in time. Probably best loved... More

We recently returned from a trip to Stockbridge where we had the fortune to visit the Norman Rockwell Museum. As Brits we were ashamed to say that we were not familiar with Norman Rockwell and his art before we visited, but we learnt so much about him and his documentation of history through his magazine cover work over so many...

If you are anywhere near Stockbridge MA, don't miss the Norman Rockwell Museum. Perhaps because our group of 60 year olds remembered some of the Saturday Evening Post Covers, this museum might have been more meaningful for us than for younger people. However, as you stroll through the museum, you realize that Norman Rockwell captured the essence of the people... More

We ended the summer with a return visit – our fourth -- to The Norman Rockwell Museum so that we could share the enjoyment of this little art museum with family visiting from Chicago. The museum continues to be a jewel box of the largest collection of Rockwell’s work. In addition to one large gallery dedicated to the 47 years... More

We visited the first time on a spectacular September day. This museum will entertain you but more importantly will make you think. Norman Rockwell's art is a time capsule of how America was during the 20th century. Every painting tells a story. The small museum houses some of his finest works in a beautiful museum that Director Steven Spielberg partially... More

The first glimpse you get of this museum tells the story of how much you are going to enjoy this visit. It is immaculate and a visual treat. The first exhibit is a short film about Rockwell. This room also houses all of his Saturday Evening Post covers. They tell the story of the United States from the 1920's to... More
