Travelers looking for a taste of true Americana will find what they seek at the Rockwell Museum in Corning, New York. Located in the former City Hall, this once private collection was previously owned by Bob and Hertha Rockwell—two department store owners whose love of art lead them to collect some seriously stunning and iconic pieces.
Visitors will find pieces by Andy Warhol, Alberty Bierstadt and Frederic Remington lining the galleries of this quiet museum, which showcases the best of American artists. Pieces include bronze sculptures and modern paintings, as well as Hudson Valley landscapes and images that depict the beauty of Manifest Destiny. A collection of contemporary works by Native Americans offers a complete vision of American tradition at the Rockwell Museum.
The museum is located at 111 Cedar Street near the Brisco Bridge, opposite the river from Corning Memorial Stadium. It is open daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and between May 23 and September 1, hours are daily from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $9 for students with ID.
