  • This was perfect. We were looking for the large painting of Mount Whitney by Albert Bierstadt, found it along with another of his studies. A bonus was the little room dedicated to Frederic Remington and Charlie Russell. And the gift shop had the most interesting items I've seen in any such shop. Our goal had been the Visions of the West exhibit, which shows the passion of its original collector, but we were perhaps even more impressed by the temporary exhibit of present-day women artists.
  • The Rockwell Museum has held one of the greatest exhibits in Corning since I was a child, full of historical pieces as well as some more modern work from time to time. If you have children, there are also some interactive exhibits and if you're a Doctor, there's a great gift shop downstairs.
  • Fantastic collection of Native American art and artifacts from the American West. A mix of paintings, sculptures and photographs. The museum felt family-friendly and there's a dedicated children's area. Enough to see to keep you preoccupied for several hours while visiting Corning. Time your visit for summer when their rooftop sometimes hosts "Music & Margaritas" evenings.
  • Pleasant, smaller, but professionally run museum located in Corning's Romanesque revival former City Hall (fully refurbished with funds from Corning, Inc.). After changing over the decades Rockwell's focus is on art and artifacts from the American West, primarily paintings, but also some works by indigenous peoples. There is a gift shop on the first floor and facilities upstairs adjacent to a small special exhibition gallery; there is no food service.
  • The price was well worth the admission. Reasonable cost. There is activities for the family especially children. Paintings and sculptures of the early 1800's, art from native African Americans. it is not far from the glass museum. I recommend spending more time than I did. I was there just over 2 hrs. I had other plans for the day. I am going to visit again with my family as I did this time.
