Being an avid Norman Rockwell fan was the main reason for selecting The Berkshires of Massachusetts as my fall getaway location in 2012. I first reached the museum for an event that was held on site named Coaching Day. This was related to the mode of travel in the early nineteenth century via horse-drawn carraiges that were presented one day only for a free viewing by the public on the grounds of the NRM, only lasted maybe a couple of hours before they moved on. Quite interesting, with beautiful carraiges, horses and costumed passengers. I returned a couple of days later to actually go inside and tour the museum. Be prepared for bus loads of tourists to arrive while you are there, wasn't a problem for me, but it could have been crowded by some opinions. Somewhat dissappointed that there were not more of Rockwell's originals on display. There seemed to be a large area devoted to other artists as well, I mean Rockwell was what drew me to visit, not another artist. Take note and visit the seperate building that was his last studio that has been moved onsite. You can go inside and see the set-up he used to render his final works. Over all, I was well pleased, except for the fire alarm being set off and all had to evacuate the building while it was raining.
