The Rockwell Museum Corning New York

Another museum I was able to visit while in Corning, New York, is the Rockwell Museum

Our diverse, unique collection, gifted by Bob and Hertha Rockwell, serves as the base of our work, and provides inspiration for our innovative programs. Our mission is to use our collection to stimulate and engage our visitors, both within the Museum and within the greater Corning community.
Housed in Corning’s Old City Hall, we have a strong presence in the local community. The Rockwell hosts activities for people of all ages and interests, from innovative arts education for children and their parents, to exceptional lectures by leading scholars.
The core of our collection was gifted by Bob and Hertha Rockwell, local business owners who amassed an incredible collection of American art and artifacts.
The Rockwells had keen eyes for art and exquisite taste.  They owned a department store in the area, and used their store as a venue to display their remarkable collection of American art and artifacts, Carder Steuben glass, classic firearms, and antique toys. 
The museum was interesting, however, the collection was not really something 
that is my taste. I did pick a few items that I enjoyed, and thought I would show
you. If you are into this type of art, this would be a great place to visit.  

You can purchase a ticket for the Corning Museum and The Rockwell Museum together if you wish to visit both on the same day. You can also walk around downtown Corning and check out the shops along Main Street which is very quaint. 

Current Museum hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Memorial Day through Labor Day (Summer), hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Museum is closed January 1, Thanksgiving Day, December 24 and 25.
