  • Very well done but the facility still maintains an outdated and intrusive mask mandate. Wonderful exhibits and presentation of Rockwell’s work.

  • A beautiful sunny summer day relaxing enjoying the beautiful artwork of our own American artist, Norman Rockwell. Along with featured artists, the afternoon was fascinating and educational. Lunch on the terrace was perfect! Nestled in the Berkshires, you listen to the songs of birds and the occasional lone whistle of a passing train. I took home a cute souvenir from their well-stocked gift shop. Enjoy!
  • Recently visited for the new fantasy art exhibit and loved it! There are new outdoor sculptures that fit the theme as well. Inside there were paintings, illustrations, and sculptures of dragons, fairies, wizards, knights, and other fairytale characters. Many paintings by artists who had designed for Magic the Gathering. Some great paintings from Lord of the Rings as well.
  • Wonderful to have this museum to reflect an artist who so we'll depicted American life. The story of the artist's life is also reflected. Bit pricey, but it is meaningful certainly to the Great Generation and various Baby Boomers. Would be courteous to have an outside simple rest room, for traveler arriving early from afar to visit the museum. The museum certainly does not lack for funds to be hospitable to long distance out-of-towners.
  • Every American should see this. You could spend a day just reading the Saturday Evening Post cover collection in one room. I wasn't aware of how many works advocating for justice he'd created. Stunning to see them all together.
  • The exhibits were fascinating and filled with lots of back history on not only Rockwell's artwork but also his life. There are staff around that are happy to answer any questions you might have about the paintings and the man himself. The additional exhibit called "Enchanted" was stunning with pieces from fantasy children's book illustrations, to massive paintings from the 1600s and 1800s. We will definitely be going back.
