A must see for anyone visiting this area. Wonderful, modern museum displaying the work of a great American. Especially important for young people to be exposed to this message of tolerance, patriotism, and civility.

We visited last week while on a family vacation and even our teens really loved learning the stories behind these beautiful pieces or art! This was just a wonderful two hours! We learned so much more than we previously had known about Norman Rockwell.
