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

It's worth the 45 minutes it takes to walk through the museum. It's nice western art not something you usually see on the east coast. Easy to get to by the shuttle from the Museum of Glass.

This museum is a fine example of Western Art as collected by The Rockwell Family in Corning, NY. The collection has evolved from a personal collection and is now a very diverse collection from many venues of all forms of Western Art.

This is a perfect glimpse of western art and well worth the discount as part of the Corning Museum of Glass ticket purchase. It is small in size - it probably takes a maximum of 1 1/2 hours to see everything on all three floors if you are a reader of all the info like I am. Take a break... More

The Rockwell Museum is located in downtown Corning. It features an extensive collection of Western art. The paintings and sculptures depict various views of the American west, with an emphasis on Native Americans. There is also a very interesting firearms collection. The Rockwell can be seen on a combo ticket with the Corning Museum of Glass.

Although small, the museum has a collection that presents a broad view of western art, including paintings, artifacts and bronzes. The selections from Remington and Russell are extensive, and there are also modern southwestern scenery pieces. We purchased a discounted two-day ticket in combination with the Corning Museum of Glass.

The Rockwell Museum was apparently once known as the Rockwell Museum of Western Art, as that is the name that appears on the front of the building (along with a bison head that appears to be bursting through the bricks). If the museum had continued to go by that full name, then some clueless people would be more apt to... More
