We took a chance on visiting this museum. It was beyond what we expected. The staff were very welcoming. We loved seeing the many paintings and hearing about what a positive force Norman Rockwell was. When leaving we took a wrong turn and actually drove through Main St. which is exactly what his painting depicted many years ago. It made... More

This is a fans' museum to honor the late artist and his work. It is a nice place to visit in order to see the original paintings. While more 'illustration' than 'art' in the contemporary sense of the word, the museum had fairly nice galleries. While he re-used a few subjects many times, and worked with some hokey and jingoistic... More

Despite the monsoon thunderstorm we got caught in our afternoon visit to the museum was enjoyable. The progression of the magazine covers is a great history lesson. Tip: Dosage a few dollars buy the combo tickets for the Rockwell, MassMoCA and The Clark.

The Norman Rockwell Museum reminds me of the mid-20th-century when I was growing up. "The Saturday Evening Post" arrived weekly at our house, where I plucked it from the mailbox, hoping for a cover by illustrator Norman Rockwell. He captured scenes of American life vividly on 323 covers for the magazine between 1916 and 1963. This wonderful museum, which sits... More

We were so impressed but the Norman Rockwell Museum. Our docent was outstanding and we learned so very much about his art and family life and she (unfortunately don't remember her name) provided so many insights that one otherwise wouldn't possibly know. The collection is incredible & gained a true appreciation for Norman Rockwell's incredible talent, social and political commentary,... More

Norman Rockwell was a gifted artist and this museum dedicated to his works shows off his gifts quite nicely. Wear some comfortable shoes and plan on spending a few hours as the collection is quite extensive. 'Nuff said1

Situated in a lovely quiet area is the Norman Rockwell's studio and museum. The museum houses the largest collection of Rockwell art. His pieces bring you back to simpler times, makes you smile at the stories each one told. Beautiful area for photography. Open 7 days a week except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. FREE ADMISSION TO ACTIVE MILITARY &... More

What an amazing museum! Every Saturday Evening Post cover with Rockwell art graced the walls of one room. Just charming artwork in a lovely setting.

The museum itself is quite a new building. The studio was moved from another location and is quite interesting with a docent in place to answer questions. There was a tour and an audio tour available in the museum which we did not utilize. We just walked around and viewed each painting with pure delight. The gift shop will ship.... More
