Thought I'd see a collection of corny, homey paintings. Much more variety than that. And, when I visited a collection of Abstract Expressionists was on display. Very impressive. You can learn a lot about Rockwell and his values. Only downside was the steep admission -$17 for seniors.

What can I say? The museum is located in a beautiful meadow in Stockbridge. I always loved Norman Rockwell and seeing the actual paintings was surreal. Downstairs was a very informative continuous running film about his life plus his magazine covers covering the walls. The gift shop sells prints and all kinds of memorabilia. The prints range from reasonable to... More

Lovely little museum, full of the Saturday Evening Post covers and other works of Norman Rockwell. The video is informative, and the docents were happy to answer questions. Rockwell's studio is open May-November. Be sure to head out and see it.

My family liked the quickie reel in the basement as well as walking around the grounds. The pieces from other artists were ok but not that remarkable. The sculptures on the side lawn were irreverent and completely enjoyable. The views from Norman's studio are beautiful. Be sure to take some time to stroll the grounds. Kids will love the stone...

The museum is a great tribute to a wonderful artist! The grounds are beautiful. We visited on Saturday , and it was certainly busy. The collection of originals is not huge , a lot of the works that Saturday Evening Post covers were based on are in private collections. But you will get to see the Four Freedoms (Thanksgiving Dinner... More

A MUST see when visiting the Berkshires! This incredible collection of Rockwell's work will knock your socks off...You don't realize how prolific he was, and how particular he was until you hear his biography narrated by his son, in the video production. You will also see every Saturday Evening Post cover that he illustrated. Additional contemporary art is also exhibited.... More

This was our second visit to this museum which is outside Lenox, Ma. I love this museum as it shows some really great illustrative art from Norman Rockwell. It shows an artists view of American life from a coffee bar to a first kiss which is great and some show a great sense of humour. There are often other exhibitions... More

We really enjoyed seeing the illustrations. They brought back many memories--both of the illustrations themselves and of life a half century ago. The short film was helpful. The room with all of the Post covers overwhelmed.

Fabulous museum. This was a return visit and we enjoyed it even more. The collection is a fabulous slice of history. The museum is well presented, clean and puts a smile on your face. The special exhibit was well done and a great juxtaposition with the permanent collection. Highly recommend for all ages!!!
