For the size and location, this is first class. It has a good cross section of high profile artist. There is an outstanding display of Norman Rockwell prints that has its own gallery. We have seen various special exhibits that are professionally displayed.

A museum that states it offers a showcase of 19th & 20th century American Art, sounds like a delightful way to spend an afternoon, but this museum offered so much more. In a charming town of less than 50,000 people, this museum has original paintings from Grandma Moses and Norman Rockwell, along with other works by John Singer Sargent and Andy Warhol. The museum is currently hosting the 35th Elkhart Juried Regional Art exhibition, it run through Dec. 8, 2013, and the talent showcased by these regional artist is as diverse and impressive, try not to miss it!
The museum itself is housed In a beautiful old bank building in downtown Elkhart, parking in the area is readily available and free for 2 hours. The staff were truly welcoming and helpful wanting to ensure you got the most out of your visit. Treat yourself to a visit, you'll be glad you did.

We came here to see an exhibit of Weston photographs, and enjoyed the well-displayed show. The regular collection is a revolving exhibition of Midwest artists and Midwestern ideals, mostly paintings and prints but also some sculpture. The upstairs area has many Norman Rockwell prints, and the "Four Freedoms" prints displayed together is particularly moving. That floor also has a great collection of pottery and ceramic art.

The docent on duty is very helpful in explaining the collection.

The place is a gem in the area. It's also good to talk a walk around the historic downtown, with some nearby places good for lunch.

We happened to see this museum on our vacation. The sign is very visible from the street. It was a former Bank. Great collection of Norman Rockwell Lithographs. The Vault was even used as a display area. The lady that greeted us was so down to earth. I purchased a couple of Small art pieces so reasonably priced in the Gift Shop. This museum is a must see in this Historical Town. Take a stroll and see the other stores Antique shops and cafes.
