Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge

January 7th, 2009 by Applegate Inn

Norman Rockwell is as American as apple pie. Our Massachsetts Inn is lucky enough to be less than 15 minutes from the Norman Rockwell Museum, which holds over 700 of his works!

The Museum is in Stockbridge, MA. It holds the largest collection of his work, as well as many of his photographs and letters.

The museum has a very informative audio tour as well as a docent-lead conversation every day at 10 a.m.

Some highlights include favorites from Saturday Evening Post covers, ‘Four Freedoms’, and ‘Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas’. The museum is a very nostalgic experience; with its close proximity to our Bed and Breakfast Lenox, we hope everyone has a chance to see the work of this exceptional American artist.

Also included is the original Rockwell Stockbridge studio building and its contents. This is a notable space, that includes his personal art collection, his equipment and artist materials as well as mementos from his travels.

The museum currently has a fascinating exhibit on World War I propaganda posters, encouraging the purchase of war bonds. The prints are almost 100 years old, and beautifully patriotic! The exhibit will only be up until January 25, so you better hurry over to our Lenox Bed and Breakfast for a visit!
