    The other review was written by an obvious retard. Museum was trademarked in 1978 by Rockwell himself. No glorification at all...Just an amazing collection with great and informative employees. A+

    Pathetic place of old magazine covers. This is just a glorified personal collection. It's like setting up your baseball card collection in your room and charging an unnecessary fee for others to look at. This place is a joke. No original art!
    The gift shop is horribly over-priced. They sell original Saturday Evening Post magazine covers ranging from $70 to $200 (the very first one by Rockwell is being sold at $550!!!!!!!!). I went on eBay to see what the prices were for these covers an they go from $5-$30. Obviously the demand is low and these people...Read More

I went on eBay to see what the prices were for these covers an they go from $5-$30. Obviously the demand is low and these people are committing highway robbery (literally and figuratively since they are on the highway). The figurines they sell are ridiculously high in price as well.
The museum also smells bad. The gift shop reeks of animal feces and septic odors. Speaking of animal feces, I couldn't help but notice mice droppings throughout the gift shop. I saw them on the floor and desks.
Save your money and time and go elsewhere!
Oh yeah! My wife bought a Saturday Evening Post "reproduction" cover. They charged $30 for this and guess what it was? They ripped an illustration straight from a book. The back of the image has a story of the proceeding week's cover and not about the very image it is on. I wish we could have gotten a refund.
