Simple and limited especially after visiting the Rockwell museum in Stockbridge earlier this month. Probably not worth going out of the way for.

If you visited this museum in its prior location, the old firehouse next to Stewart's, it has changed quite a bit. None the less if you're visiting Arlington you have to stop to see how this small town influenced this amazing American artist who provided countless covers for the Saturday evening post.

We did not realize there was such a wonderful exhibit of Norman Rockwell when we visited the Sugar Shack. We were coming to find maple syrup and found a great history of an amazing artist. We watched the short video and walked around looking at the art and pictures of the local people Rockwell had painted. It was a fun... More

Museum covers all the magazine covers and paintings he did interesting, the most interesting part for me was the attached Sugar Shack with it's varieties of maple sugar products and jellies and baked goods. It's well worth the stop..

We stopped here not expecting much, but were surprised. This is a local, home town style recognition of a local hero / talent. Although he lived in several locations, he lived in Stockbridge, MA starting 1953 and was involved in the Pittsfield area. This local exhibit is not as polished as a museum, but you must stop in and see... More

Went to this exhibition wondering after our host commented, "he painted everyone in Arlington". But it was a highlight and ," Yes", he did paint everyone in Arlington and this is a tribute to Normon Rockwell and the people of Arlington that is well done. It can take 10 minutes or as long as you want. Be sure to watch... More

Lady running the exhibit was very friendly, she put on a short film about Norman Rockwell’s life and then we wandered around the exhibit looking at his work and his life in Arlington. NIce little shop selling Rockwell prints, postcards, magnets etc. I thought there was a charge to look around but its all by donation.
