Western art well displayed

We enjoyed the artwork from the American West. The restored building adds interest. Parking is easy across the street.

Easily accessible, and with a free shuttle to the Glass Museum, this gallery has some great exhibits, particularly of Western art. Manageable size, friendly staff, plenty of seating and a nice gift shop. Well worth visiting.

I would recommend this museum unreservedly to anyone who loves US Western art. Beside Remington and Russel there are a couple of Bierstadts and much else. When we were there we saw the best collection of Native American pottery that we have ever seen. A fine collection of firearms from the winning of the west. Fine museum shop. Great location... More

This is a collection of works donated by the Rockwell family. It features American artists, ceramics by Aboriginal groups in the permanent collection. As well there is a large area devoted to changing exhibits. This Gallery is certainly worth a visit.

I've been here numerous times over the past ten years or so, and I am never disappointed. This is a small collection, but it is beautifully curated in Corning’s Old City Hall which lends another layer of history and art to the experience. Visiting exhibitions are always lovely - I've seen Ansel Adams, antique toys, and firearm collections. But every... More

Despite its name it is not Norman Rockwell type art - it is mostly western art inc. paintings, sculpture, etc. from the masters of the genre: Remington, Russell, Catlin, etc and is one of the best in America! The enormous Bierstadt in the Great Hall will require much contemplation as one could study it for an hour and still miss... More

We went to this lovely museum on the day before Thanksgiving. We basically had the museum to ourselves. They have a wonderful collection of Native American and Western art. The building itself is beautiful, and very well maintained. They have the collections spread out on 3 levels and it is very easy to walk around since it is laid out... More

I grew up in Corning and can remember when Bob Rockwell personally met me at the front door (When the buffalo head was in the lobby). That was a neat experience for a young kid. So, I have fond memories of the museum. After living on the west coast for 10 years one of the first things I did upon... More
