After a long morning, my husband and I wanted to take in some sights nearby where we were staying so we decided to come here. Online closing time is listed on various sites as both 4PM and 5PM. To ascertain what time they really closed, at 3:30PM my husband called ahead. He was told that the "museum" would be closing at 4PM, unless we were there in which case it would close at 5. What? Talk about mixed messages.
So we zoomed down to find out that we had to pay $6.50 each to get in. That's outrageous for a one-room show -- albeit a PACKED one room. What's more, the pieces the place (I'm loath to call it a museum, it's really just a gallery) has are not originals, so in some respects they're a dime a dozen.
They were wonderful to look at though. Norman Rockwell was an extraordinarily talented artist.
What this gallery did for me was whet my appetite to go to Stockbridge, Mass. to see the REAL Rockwell museum.
I'd say this is a good rainy day or late afternoon activity, but for what it is, it's not worth going inside and wasting daylight hours that can be spent in the wonderful outdoors of this beautiful state.
