Nice way to spend a few hours or more. Extensive collection of Rockwells magazine covers, a small video of his life, and associated paintings, etc. Very informative.

The paintings are almost like photographs when you get up close and see them. The museum is in a very rural setting with a newer building housing most of the artwork. For $17.50 there are people telling the history of each of the paintings, I hesitate from calling it a tour but you can come and go as you please,... More

I had visited Norman Rockwell's shop in Stockbridge in the 1970's, but hadn't been back since. The Norman Rockwell museum is a great place to see Rockwell's work and learn more of his life. The property where the museum has been built has a beautiful view of the Berkshire mountains, and includes his original studio (which was moved here). The... More

... or story filled art. The work is just moving in how it captures the American Experience of last century. And the museum truly does justice to his memory.

Great selection of 20th Century art. Walk round grounds and visit his studio - great views. No real cafe or restaurant

Many reviewers have written about this fine museum and its contents, so I'm going to hit a couple of points which haven't been mentioned as much. We had been to the museum before, and this time we decided to eat lunch there, at their Terrace Cafe. It turned out to be much different from the usual museum cafe, and quite... More

My sister-in-law had this museum on her bucket list. I'm so thankful she did. It's a small museum, but with wonderful displays of Rockwell's work. You have the choice of a guided tour, but we opted to browse on our own. Never realized the amount of work he did. Loved their gift shop; had a great variety of items to... More

Beautifully situated and an ideal destination in the Fall. The art changes regularly so you won't always see the same thing. Rockwell's early art (pre-WW2) is really magnificent and it is worth the trip to be able to see it close up.

If you like Norman Rockwell, you will love this museum. It is beautifully done and a thrill to see his works on the wall. When we were there there was an Edward Hopper exhibit so I imagine they must have the works of other artists. I highly recommend the museum if you are in the area, and if you are... More
