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.

Museum is small but worth visiting especially as part of a combo package with the Glass Museum. The gift shop has a wonderful eclectic collection of things to buy. The gifts for kids are particularly novel and fun.

If you're in Corning, make time to see the extensive collection of American heritage artwork. This museum offers a unique perspective of the expansion and settlement of the continental US. Beautiful and rare finds.

Okay if you like the western themes. Was ok, but wouldn't go again. They do have a nice family room for kids activities.

Small museum with some interesting things to see but I thought and was looking for NORMAN Rockwell, which this is not.

Lovely small museum of western art, sculpture, and artifacts. Beautiful building that previously housed a fire station. Shows the collection of art pieces acquired by Corning merchant Robert Rockwell. I especially enjoy the Taos Arts Society paintings, pottery and sculpture. Well worth a visit.

This modest museum focuses on Native American and Western themes. It is not too large, but the exhibitions are very well done. The shop is also fun, with Native American jewelry for sale.
