Art about the american experience -- the people, land and ideas that shape America through the eyes of American artists. Connect and reflect on the story of America through the eyes of American artists. The diverse collection of original American masterpieces includes a mix of contemporary Native American art alongside traditional bronze sculptures, landscape paintings and other works that embody America and the migration west. Kids and teens 17 and under are always free to The Rockwell -- specialized Art Hunts and our Family Exploration Studio make our museum the perfect destination for all ages. The Rockwell is named for our founding collectors, Bob and Hertha Rockwell, local business owners who amassed an incredible collection of American art and artifacts.

Beautiful paintings and sculptures depicting the American western frontier (think cowboy era). Many of the paintings are not from that era but are recent creations. All are amazing. Museum is relatively small so you can see it all without taking all day. You can get...More

This museum is not that large. The building itself is quite beautiful. However If you do not like Americana art this museum is not for you.
