If you are a fan, or just want to learn about this illustrator's life, you must see this wonderful museum. Traces the history of the Saturday Evening Posts illustrated by Rockwell. His studio is open for viewing and his paintings and illustrations are wonderful to see. There is a Post cover published on the day I was born. Enjoy!

It's not trendy to like Norman Rockwell. But looking at his work with an open mind and an understanding of how it connected to the historical context is well worth it. The museum presents an informative and interesting history of Rockwell and his work, and of course, most people will recognize several of the pieces. There was also an exhibit... More

We were told by all we had to go to the Norman Rockwell Museum! We loved the grounds, the art sculptures outside, the real studio that was moved to this site, plus the amazing covers and art work!! The guides were well informed, and the illustrations were amazing! To see all his work in one place was great...we really enjoyed... More

It's certainly off the beaten path a bit, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stop here. We spent about four hours in the gallery rooms using the self guided audio tour, listening occasionally to a very knowledgeable docent, and viewing the grounds and his last studio, which was relocated to the museum property from Stockbridge in 1986. It has a complete... More

Something for everyone. Well produced video presentation, spacious museum for beautiful artwork, examples of early sketches, reproduction of the artist's original studio, picnic grounds, children's treasure hunt, all set in the Berkshires. A must see if you are in the area.

The museum included original sketches and oils of work many have seen on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. It's a little pricey ($18 pp). We got the audio guide because they said it was included, but it actually cost $4 pp more - but it really did help make it a more enjoyable and informative experience. I didn't... More

If you can find the place, it makes for a nice little stop. You can spend probably one to two hours in the galleries and then there is a small cafe, which is convenient and handy. The grounds are beautiful and picturesque and you can even see Rockwell's studio. If you have some time and you want to do something... More

The Norman Rockwell Museum was a huge disappointment. The tour we went on was the same information, almost word for word, that was in the video playing in the gallery on the bottom floor that had 323 Rockwell covers from The Saturday Evening Post. To celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Norman Rockwell Museum’s first Saturday Evening Post cover, Boy... More

This building and the land around it are beautiful. The galleries are time machines back to my youth and the Saturday Evening Post magazines. Take a docent tour. They are informative and friendly.

This is a really interesting gallery that displays the full range of Rockwell's work. There are scheduled talks and informal chats with guides that provide excellent context to the work. The gallery itself is in beautiful countryside that leads to a carefully reproduced studio and has sculptures by his son and other artists. We spent a lovely afternoon here.
