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

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

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.
