Few artists portrayed 20th Century life in America as beautifully and convincingly as Norman Rockwell. That’s why some of his most famous paintings and illustrations are permanently lodged in our collective consciousness, like his depiction of a family’s Thanksgiving feast titled the Four Freedoms. The Norman Rockwell Museum boasts the world’s largest collection of the artist’s works, plus items from his studio, including personal memorabilia, books, art supplies, letters, and reference materials. Their Archival Collection is a comprehensive compilation of his personal papers and ephemera and includes thousands of photographs of people and scenes used in his artwork. Admission is $16 for adults, $14.50 seniors, $10 for students with I.D., and $5 for children ages 6 through 18. Open every day.
