It’s hard to believe, but this year marks the 45th anniversary of Norman Rockwell Museum. In 1969 we first opened our doors in the Old Corner House, a historic building in the center of Stockbridge, with help from Norman and Molly Rockwell. Since that time, nearly six million visitors have enjoyed our changing exhibitions, programs, and scholarship, and we have become recognized as the premiere museum for American illustration art.

During this anniversary year, we are looking for your help. We encourage you to take part in our “Make History – Give 45” campaign, offering your contribution in any amount to help us reach our goal of $45,000 by the end of this June. Your donation will help us preserve our priceless art collections and artist’s studio, present exciting new exhibitions, and compelling programs for young people and lifelong learners.
