As part of a daytrip to Corning, we went to the Rockwell Museum and were pleasantly surprised by the number of pieces on display. It was an enjoyable time spent in this unique museum.

Nicely arranged & lay out of museum on 3 floors. Great variety of old & new artists, paint, sculture, digital photography. Children did a scavenger hunt on all 3 floors which made them enjoy the experience more. Recommend buying the combo ticket package with Corning Museum of Glass. Can easily do both museums in one day. Free shuttle between museums also. Love the old western theme throughout the museum.

I have gone several times with various friends of many ages. Always find something new to spark my interest. A very young friend (7) liked the scavenger hunt they offered.

We only went to this museum because we were offered a combo ticket at the Corning Museum. But it was a great little gem of a museum! They had an amazing collection of Clyde Aspevig paintings.

A wonderful collection of Western Art in a small museum. Worth a visit. Easy to walk around in the museum. The museum showcases classic to contemporary pieces.
