Excellent layout. Don't miss the lower level where every Post magazine cover is displayed. Do it. We went on "free Friday" and it was very crowded but manageable. Much less crowded otherwise.

I am a total Rockwell fan so this was a thrill to visit here. It is not a huge museum but has a very nice collection of Rockwell's work and I saw a number of pieces that I had never known about before. Seeing the original Rockwell paintings and drawings was very impressive, as the reproductions and prints just do... More

This is an extraordinary museum chronicling not only the life of Norman Rockwell but other illustrators as well. Equally great were the stories behind many of the works on display.

The Norman Rockwell Museum honors the illustrator and painter who is best known for his Saturday Evening Post covers from 1916 - 1963 and for his later Look Magazine scenes of the reality of change in America. The museum houses the studio, which was transported from Main Street in downtown Stockbridge, MA. Major works shown include the Four Freedoms Series... More

Honors the life and work of Norman Rockwell and includes his original studio on the grounds. The audio guide was illuminating on Rockwell's work and contributions to art history.

This is one of my favorite museums I have ever attended. The docent gave a very educational and enlightening talk on Rockwell, the subjects he drew, and his techniques in creating a work. I learned so much more about his style and the man than I ever knew. Just as interesting was a visit to his studio which is right... More

You can't come to the area and not visit this museum. Aside from Norman Rockwell's genius, the people who work there are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The gift shop is top notch.

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!
