  • The Norman Rockwell Museum was a great place to visit! They have about 70% of his collection and every original Saturday Evening Post his artwork was on. We are staying in New York in the Catskills....  more »
  • This felt like an obligatory visit since we were in Stockbridge and because we both grew up familiar with Rockwell. However, seeing his work (the originals) and the learning the history and context.....  more »
  • Wow what an experience. We have all seen art by Norman Rockwell on magazine covers. To really appreciate the genius of the man you need to visit this place. Listen to a docent, learn the messages told in paintings I never would have noticed. With a close up view of actual paintings you see what a master of detail the man was. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The grounds are beautiful. Bring a picnic lunch or have a bite at the outdoor cafe.
  • Magnificent works by a legendary artist alongside special exhibits like none other all set in the middle of the breathtakingly stunning backdrop of the mountains of the Berkshires. Rockwell's studio is set up as he used it in life and the museum is wonderfully designed. Staff is friendly and incredibly knowledgeable, a visit here is a must! You won't regret it!
  • Museum grounds were beautiful. There is a free app that allows you to do the audio! Make sure to bring your ear buds. The gift shop is great. Small Cafe area with a great covered seating area. Pretty walking paths. Of course the artwork is beautiful.
  • Wonderful museum and our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. She made the day so perfect. The grounds are gorgeous. We have been to so many museums across the US but this is by far one of my favorites.
  • The history and work of Norman Rockwell draws one in to the American life and humor through his eyes and illustrations. Wonderful plaques explaining each picture. Talks by very knowledgeable docents and videos leave you even more appreciative of Rockwell's work. Very well done.
