Art about the american experience -- the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists. Connect and reflect on the story of America through the eyes of American artists. The diverse collection of original American masterpieces includes a mix of contemporary Native American art alongside traditional bronze sculptures, landscape paintings and other works that embody America and the migration west. Kids and teens 17 and under are always free to The Rockwell -- specialized Art Hunts and our Family Exploration Studio make our museum the perfect destination for all ages. The Rockwell is named for our founding collectors, Bob and Hertha Rockwell, local business owners who amassed an incredible collection of American art and artifacts.

This is a small art museum. The only reason we went here is because we were able to purchase a combo ticket with the glass museum. There were a few large pieces of western art but it will not take long to go through it. Unless you have extra time, I would skip this.

No Norman Rockwell!!!! My fault for misunderstanding the name. However ordinal Picasso's, Frederick Remingtons and genuinely moving Civil War phot exhibition. Buy entrance as a combo with Corning Glass for best value

Did not know what to expect when we bought the combination tickets with the glass museum (another gem in this town). The day we were there there were different exhibits on each of the three floors. On top was Western theme based on Frederick Remington and Charles Russel. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment of this subject and the... More

Wonderful western pieces including Remington bronzes, American Indian art & civil war photographs on display. Lovely museum and quiet place to reflect on pieces. Galleries rotate pieces so you will see different collections throughout the year. Nicely done and close to market shops and antique stores.

This was a waste of the money it cost to get in. It seemed to be a small, random collection of anything that could loosely be called western paintings. 3 floors but small floors, not much actual history, and I thought the best part was the outside of the building. We spent more time in the gift shop than the... More

Hi Megon, I'm sorry to hear that your trip to The Rockwell was disappointing. It's true that our museum is small -- we have over 3,000 artworks and artifacts in our collection, but are only able to display a very limited portion at a time. We try to rotate the artwork frequently so that visitors can come again and see... More

The children in our family loved the craft exhibit. The scavenger hunt was a hit and I loved looking at so many gorgeous paintings. The terrace on the third floor was a wonderful addition to our day. The view is AMAZING. Their staff was very helpful and welcoming. I would recommend this museum to everyone! I will definitely be returning... More

Beautiful paintings. Lovely staff. Awesome building & terrace. The view from the terrace was awe-inspiring. We could have sat there all day.

We visit every few years and always enjoy our favorites and seeing what has been added. The special exhibit of civil war era photos was very interesting and informative.

This beautiful collection by itself would not warrant a 4.5 hour drive to Corning (how long it took us from White Plains, NY) but if you are a fan of western art, it provides a wonderful and low-key pairing with the Museum of Glass. Over three floors you will find excellent selections of New Mexico pueblo pottery, the Taos artists,... More

My husband and I visited the Rockwell on a dual pass with the Corning Museum of Glass. We got a discount on the Rockwell admission. The Rockwell is about a mile from the Corning Museum. We drove, but the Corning has shuttles every 10 min. or so. The Rockwell is a small museum. I had poked around online beforehand and... More
