Normand Rockwell is considered to be one of the great Illustrators. As far as I'm concerned, he was a great artist who could tell a wonderful story in one painting. The collection of his works is awe inspiring a real history of America from the early 1900's until the 1960's. You could spend hours looking at all the renderings, how... More

We were so surprised at the amount of paintings and Rockwell covers in the museum. There are informational videos as well. Tour guide Cheryl was wonderful, she was able to answer all our question and was a wealth of knowledge and fun facts about Mr. Rockwell. There is also Mr. Rockwell's studio that was brought to the museum grounds, that... More

All the famous paintings that were used for the prints. Tours every hour or so are very informative and enjoyable.

Spend the few extra dollars to use the audio device. It adds so much more to the experience of viewing the illustrations, with details about each cover and humorous stories. The video about Norman Rockwell is excellent. The room with The Four Freedoms from FDR's famous speech is very powerful. We spent about 21/2 hours enjoying entering into the era... More

Apart of the Americana art impression of the time post Second World War . Fairly new museum with a beautiful display of Rockwell's impression of the everyday people from the New England towns of America . A must for every American to visit .

We visit in the fall and always see something new and engaging. This time we experienced both the Rockwell and Realism and Nast special exhibits. Lunch on the terrace was perfect -- great food and beautiful view of the outdoor campus. And of course, Norman's studio is a highlight; it is now just as when he worked there!

Being fans of Norman Rockwell, my husband and I have wanted to visit the town of Stockbridge and the museum for a long time. We were not disappointed with either! I was glad we went to the museum first since the very enthusiastic docent filled us in on many details we would not have known if we had seen the... More
