Located in the Berkshires in Stockbridge, MA, where Norman Rockwell spent the last 25 years of his life, the Norman Rockwell Museum was founded with the help of the artist and his wife in 1969. The museum moved to its current 36-acre location overlooking the Housatonic River Valley in 1993 and the new museum gallery building was designed by architect Robert A. M. Stern.
The Norman Rockwell Museum houses the worlds largest collection of original Norman Rockwell artwork with nearly a thousand paintings and drawings in its collection. The collection also includes over 100,000 items from the artist such as working photographs and more.
Daily the museum provides audio tours, gallery orientation talks, and a creativity center to provide some hands-on art experience. Adult and family programs are offered and watch their calendar for special events.
The museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
