Overview

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.

Thanks for your visit, Darlene. We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed the collection! It's true - The Rockwell is an intimate museum, as we typically suggest an hour to an hour and a half to visit. Less than 15% of our collection is...More

The museum used to be called something like the Museum of American Western Art, but it changed its name as it decided to expand its collection beyond art celebrating the American West (which still represents the lion's share of the exhibition). You will find a...More

While a modest collection in terms of numbers of artworks, the scope of the collection in the Rockwell Museum of American Art is impressive. But it is not a museum of Norman Rockwell art. From well known to the lesser known artists of the American...More

We love small museums, and this one is a treasure. We've never seen such a comprehensive (and beautifully displayed) collection of western painting, drawing and sculpture in a grand, historic building. Not to be missed.

This museum is terrific in size and beauty. The employees behind the desk are informative, friendly and welcoming. The town is Charming, friendly, a lot of places to eat and to pick up souvenirs. I will definitely be returning.
