The National Museum of American Illustration is a must-see museum for anyone interested in American art and illustration. It's located in a beautiful old Newport mansion in the midst of the several mansions open for tour. The museum's collection is outstanding, with original art by Wyeth, Rockwell, Leyendecker, Parrish, Pyle, Gibson, and all the great American illustrators. I visited off-season, when the museum is only open on Fridays, but I think it is also open on weekends in the summer season. There is also a great gift shop.
