This is a great place to visit year round. We were very impressed with the Hanna-Barbera exhibit. Of course we are also very partial to all of the Rockwell works. The staff is very knowledgeable regarding the Rockwell collections. As such, I suggest a visit during one of the tours to learn more about Rockwell and his works.

I am not necessarily an art afficiando, but I have enjoyed some of Rockwell's covers as I think most people have. What was here was a vast collection of his paintings that were used as covers, as well as some that never made it to the cover of a magazine. There are free talks during the day; downstairs is a...

We went in 2012. The paintings that you're familiar with, from The Saturday Evening Post, are all there in front of you. There are also pieces of art that were done later in his life. The entire museum is full of breathtaking artwork. There is also a gift shop you cannot miss! Part of the tour is to Rockwell's studio,... More

When visiting the museum don't hesitate to join one of the talks which are around half an hour and very memorable. You will want to consider becoming a member sooner or later. The museum takes one back but also brings you forward. Each work by Norman Rockwell is a story that stands alone and rings true. This time due to... More

Thank you very much for your nice review. We're so glad you are planning a trip to return later in the year to visit Rockwell's studio. The studio needs to be winterized during the cold months and is why it is closed at this time of year. It is open May 1 through October 31st; the museum itself is open... More

This is a fantastic display of Norman Rockwell's work in a beautiful location. We got there in time for one of the short introductory tour which was excellent. It lasted about 30 minutes and gave a great overview of Rockwells life and his work. We then took plenty of time to walk around and view the amazing artwork which is... More

The popularity of Norman Rockwell's art has endured because the truths he painted about transcend politics. He painted about the simple joys of being an American. At this time of political strife, I wish politicians of all stripes and allegiances pay a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum because the paintings they will be looking at should be what the...

Fascinating insight into one of America's greatest illustrators / artist. The museum is both spacious while being strangely personal. I suggest that prior to visiting the main gallery you take a few watch the highly informative overview of basement

I forgot just how prolific this artist was. Excellent collection of magazine covers and images. Don't bypass the audio tour - it makes a difference.

Our middle of winter road trip started off with this heartwarming visit. A nice, modern, accessible museum on a country road near Stockbridge Massachusetts, containing a large number of Rockwell paintings, as well as a section with Hannah Barbera sketches and interesting information. In the basement, the exposition continues with a short video, about Norman Rockwell, photos etc. and a... More

No matter your age you've no doubt seen works of Norman Rockwell. This museum does a wonderful job of presenting a lot of his work, giving the work context, and setting up how he not only influenced a generation of American artists but also influenced our society. You learn about the man, his life, how his paintings came to be,... More
