After reading all the reviews we decided to give it a try. And we must say it exceeded our expectations. It was fun and informative. Had no idea how talented he was or how influential this was a good visit

Museum is well appointed, well run, excellent gift shop, and not too big a collection that would dismay a casual museum goer.

We spent 3 hours at the Norman Rockwell Museum. Listened to a Gallery talk and walked the beautiful grounds. It helped that the week after Labor Day, 2014 was nice.

This small museum is in a beautiful setting in the Berkshires. Tranquil and scenic. The museum is very well laid out. There are 323 magazine covers framed and displayed. It was a pleasure to see and brought back a lot of memories. The oils were well chosen. There was also a Edward Hopper exhibit going on. Nice display of his... More

Lovely museum in a beautiful setting. Rockwell's studio was also open to visit. Very inspirational. Museum was laid out in an easy fashion to visit. Well worth the time and money. The docent was excellent.

I love Norman Rockwell's art (or as he called it, illustrations). This museum has so many of Rockwell's painting, and presents them in a way which really gives much insight into who Rockwell was, and how he thought. We listened to a short over-view presentation, and read most of the descriptions presented with the paintings. I now have a much... More

This museum was one of the highlights of our trip to Great Barrington, MA. Beautiful grounds, separate building housing the artist's studio, two story museum. One room has every one of Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post covers. Excellent video presentation of the man, his work, and his life. Highly recommended for everyone.

The Norman Rockwell Museum has a beautiful setting, 34 acres just outside the village of Stockbridge, but while you can visit his last studio as well as the museum, it is disappointing to learn that the property was not his (he lived in the town) and the studio was moved here. The museum has a collection of his Saturday Evening... More

Growing up and looking at so many Saturday Evening Post covers, I never really appreciated the art and the artist. When you visit the museum and see the original paintings, you realize the talent of Norman Rockwell. The detail and technique of the paintings are amazing. Seeing the originals casts a whole new light on the magazines that we are... More

This is a beautiful museum that usually has another featured artist as well. There are many pieces of Mr. Rockwell's work that was never published, as well as many originals that were. The accessibility to these works is unique in that one can get within inches of these masterpieces. They also moved his art studio from his home in town,... More
