New York: Corning – Rockwell Museum

The Rockwell Museum (nothing to do with Norman) in Corning, New York is an interesting and diverse collection gifted by local business owners Bob and Hertha Rockwell. 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 artefacts, Carder Steuben glass, classic firearms, and antique toys. Today, the Rockwell Museum is a centre for the local community and has achieved prestigious status as a Smithsonian affiliate.
