“An unexpected but fun place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Very interesting exhibits. Stimulating environment and part of a wonderful community. When visiting the COrning Museum of Glass, the Rockwell is an excellent and unexpectedly worthwhile place to visit.

“Don't miss this museum in original city hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Really enjoyed this collection of paintings, sculptures, models and guns representing the culture and history of the western US. The exhibits are found on 3 floors with elevator access available. The small shop has a good selection of books and other souvenirs for sale. We saw everything in a little more than an hour. The Gaffer (historic) district is just around the corner from this facility so take a stroll to see the classic architecture of downtown.

“Very nice small museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We're not huge fans of western art but we went because of the joint ticket with the Corning Museum of Glass - we were really glad that we added the stop, we spent about 1.5 hours in the Rockwell Museum and very much enjoyed the traveling exhibit. The permanent collection was very nice, but not really our style. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
