So cool

What a great artist. It seems strange to find a great artist who actually benefitted financially from his work. He was quite the prolific painter.

I like museums that are small, that you can enjoy in a half day and not feel overwhelmed. This one is perfect. There is a solid collection of Rockwell's work on display and the special exhibit was the work of JC Leyendecker who, like Rockwell, did many years' worth of Saturday Evening Post covers. The gift shop has a great... More

As a Brit, I have only limited exposure to Norman Rockwell's art so to hear his story, told using his pictures was very interesting and informative. This is a small collection and therefore it is possible to see everything easily. We listened to the short guided tour at 12.30 and would recommend, very informative. Sorry to miss the artist's studio... More

I have loved Rockwell's depictions of life for years. Went to the old Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge years ago and also to the museum in Vermont. This new (to me!) museum in Stockbridge is wonderful. The collection of hundreds of Saturday Evening Post covers is extraordinary. The entire collection displays Rockwell's knack of illustrating stories of life in America. There... More

From the outside, this doesn't look much, but it's like the Tardis!!!! Rooms galore with all his drawings and paintings, etc... It was totally fascinating. A trip to the store is a must, as they have prints, and all sorts of other Rockwell stuff, to buy, at a reasonable cost. We were certainly not disappointed.

A quaint, small museum FULL of masterpieces by this talented man! A typical price of admission for a NY museum, just remind yourself that proceeds go to educate!

The completeness of Norman Rockwell's work as presented here is amazing. Be sure to get the ear phones to get a complete description of certain works. The setting for the museum is very attractive even on a cold snowy day. You will absolutely enjoy your visit here!

Thank you for mentioning our award-winning audio tour, glad you enjoyed it! It's narrated by Peter Rockwell, Norman Rockwell's son, and provides some wonderful in-depth background on many of Rockwell's most famous works. More

A lovely facility in a beautiful area, this is the place to go to learn how much you know - and don't know - about Norman Rockwell. Fun for the whole family.

I visited my daughter in Great Barrington during her spring break, and the Norman Rockwell museum was one of very few available things to do in this area in April. We really enjoyed it, and I would heartily recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Rockwell. It was very interesting to get a sense of his connectedness to... More

I enjoy Norman Rockwell's work & it was nice to see that the museum is larger now to offer more to see than the former location on Main Street. The woman tour guide was incredible, so knowledgable & you could tell she loved her job! Great visit.

So glad you were able to come visit us again. Thank you for your kind words about your guide. Some of our docents have been with us over 20 years! No matter how long our docents have been with us, though, they all share a love of the work of Norman Rockwell and enjoy passing that joy on to our... More
