Loved visiting the Sugar Shack and loved the Rockwell Exhibition. It was wonderful seeing the pictures of real life people next to the Saturday Evening Post covers.

Best display of pictures with comments I've ever seen. It is obvious the Arlington Community and Norman Rockwell had a deep connection.

Having moved from its home in the old firehouse to the Sugar Shack some things have changed. There is a huge display of magazine covers produced by Rockwell as well as a gift shop area with prints, magnets, and other items.

I enjoyed learning more about Norman Rockwell and his paintings - and very local models! I did not know about so many of his themed paintings

Many reproductions of Norman Rockwell works. I did not see anything original. The previous owner was I'm for the weekend. Very knowledgeable and just a nice adult gentlemen. Most places that do Rockwell are similar. Low pressure here and reasonable prices.

Nice quirky exhibit attached to the Sugar Shack. I learned a lot about Norman Rockwell's life. Small and easy exhibit to do while visiting Sugar Shack.
