What is there to do?

Norman Rockwell was one of the most incredible and inspiring artists of the 20th century, and a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum celebrates that!

The Norman Rockwell Museum is home to the largest and most significant collection of Rockwell art in the WORLD - so if you are a fan of his art, or just love to explore new things, a visit here on your next family day out might just need to be on the list!

So who just is Norman Rockwell? Well, he was actually born in New York City in 1894, and always knew he wanted to be an artist (kids, if there is something you LOVE to do growing up, that might just be your calling!)

At 14, Rockwell enrolled in art classes, and went on to study art in the National Academy of Design, and actually found success early, leading to painting a whopping 322 magazine cover in his career, and from 1939 began to paint works that reflected small-town life in America - freezing moments of the nation's history for all to see throughout the ages.

Not only does the Norman Rockwell Museum hold a significant public collection of original Rockwell pieces, but it also features a number of other displays filled with personal memorabilia, reference materials and supplies.

History, art, and a US icon - it's all there waiting to be discovered in Vermont's Norman Rockwell Museum - it's art-tastic!
