I was not sure we were both going to enjoy this museum visit, but we actually did. It was an amazing experience to be up close with these works of art. His talent can surely be seen. It is a fairly large collection of his work.

We're always looking for places to take the kids, who are 11, 10, and 8. The Norman Rockwell Museum is a nice destination for families because his artwork can be appreciated by both adults and children. His paintings tell stories that reflect how America was during important periods like the Great Depression and World War II; it was great for... More

A wonderful museum that displays the original painting of Norman Rockwell beautifully. The incredible detail and talent of Norman Rockwell truly is truly amazing. The vibrancy was unexpected and so refreshing. The Mort Kunstler exhibition was such a treat. Having enjoyed and viewed his artwork in Gettysburg it was great to see this display.

We spent about 3 hours here on a very cold, snowy winter day and really enjoyed ourselves. It paid to listen to the short video downstairs to get to know Norman Rockwell, then listen to the tour that they have upstairs. The tour woman really put Mr. Rockwell's life in perspective and explained a lot of the paintings. The size... More

The tour offered was enlightening. The additional details and genuine love of the artist shone through. It was wonderful to see the paintings on display and to hear his son narrate the film about his life. So many familiar images! The inclusion of the art of Mort Kunstler was an interesting and unexpected bonus. Illustrators were obviously very much a... More

This museum was well worth the ride to see all the amazing Post magazine covers from Norman Rockwell, it was like a trip down memory lane. You really could spend most of the day there. We were there for about 2 hours, as we got there late in the afternoon. It was not expensive, hubby and I started out together,... More

Walking into the Norman Rockwell Museum is like coming home and being reacquainted with old friends. All the pictures you remembered from childhood magazines and posters are all smiling down at you. And being introduced to the ones you had forgotten or perhaps never met before; is like discovering a hidden room in an old house...both magical and exciting. If... More

We went for the “Mort Künstler: The Art of Adventure,” exhibit, which was truly awesome. It also was the last day of Norman Rockwell "Home For The Holidays". The added icing was the Berkshire County High School Art Show. The staff is outstanding. The magazine cover exhibit down stairs with the student art show were really priceless. I am thinking...

I really enjoyed the museum and all of the newspaper cover. What a nice way to spend the afternoon. Most of the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. As always one or two need to work on smiling and being courteous
