The Rockwell Museum, Corning

#2 of 7 in Museums in Corning
The Rockwell Museum is a place where visitors

connect and reflect on the story of America – its

history, culture and spirit – through the eyes of

American artists. 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.

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.

  • Magnificent building with priceless pieces of American Indian art including many pieces of amazing Iroquois beadwork  more »
  • The teens were a bit hard to please although the art was quite impressive and the scavenger hunt kept the younger kids engaged.  more »
  • An absolutely beautiful museum. Only costs about $12 per adult to get in and only takes an hour to walk through. Definitely consider stopping if you want a place to learn a little and stretch your legs. If have any questions the staff is very knowledgeable and will tell you almost anything you want to know!
  • I wasn't too excited about this place we looked for someone to speak to and were left to our own devices. The only time anyone came over to me was to scold me for taking pictures of an Andy Warhol exhibit which contained two pieces worth talking about but nothing to write home about. But I have to say the paintings and artifacts of the people of that region of New York in the mid 17-18 hundreds was okay but that was it, not really much to keep you interested. I wouldn't recommend you buying the extra admission at the Corning Museum of Glass. Stick with the Corning Museum only. Save your money. But if you want to take the Shuttle Bus to Market Square that's fine. They have a lot of little shops there to choose from. Take care and enjoy.
