I've done this museum before but not my husband so it was nice to see it through fresh eyes. Also had the opportunity to meet one of the artist's who's work was on exhibit, Murray Tinkelman.

Outstanding collection of his pieces. Loved the room containing all the Saturday Night Covers in chronological order. Only complaint is the works of the other Artists displayed. Would rather see more of his pieces. Still a great time.

We love this museum! Haven't been in several years, and seeing again today was like seeing it for the first time. The detail of Rockwells work can keep you looking and looking, not wanting to miss a single detail. A great day trip with lunch at the Red Lion and only a hour drive perfect. Can't wait to go again... More

This was our third visit to the museum but my sister's first. They are renovating so some of the displays weren't open but it was still a wonderful outing. My sister wasn't disappointed so we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

I can remember growing when you could not wait to seen the new Saturday Evening Post. What was Rockwell up to. He always made a statement in his work. I truly enjoyed it. I just wish there had been more. Brought back some very fond memories. If you are in the area don't miss it. Very enjoyable. Students get a... More

What works they have at this museum are wonderful, but we expected many more. Great to see all of the 'Saturday Evening Post' covers displayed chronologically; great to see what original paintings and drawings they have; hope they continue to add to the collection!

We were lucky enough to time our visit so that we immediately joined a quick tour. Definitely, definitely try to do that if you can. Our guide was funny and interesting, gave us just enough information to whet the appetite but didn't go through every single picture. I guess she kept us for maybe 15 minutes, and then you're free...

Do visit. It is important to do a tour with a docent. They are a wealth of information. It so enriches the visit. The shop is wonderful!
