More than a museum – The Rockwell is a unique community center where people enjoy, connect, and reflect on the essence of the American experience, character, and values through the eyes of American artists. The Rockwell Museum is the only Smithsonian Affiliate in Upstate New York.
Housed within Corning’s Historic City Hall, The Rockwell explores the evolution of being American through the eyes of American artists. With up to three spotlight exhibitions throughout the year and an ever-evolving collection, there’s always something new to see and experience.

KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab is an interactive family studio, located just around the corner from the Rockwell Museum at 36 E. Market St. in Corning. Activity stations at the Art Lab are all inspired by the artwork and architecture of The Rockwell, with the goal of making art accessible to kids and inspiring an appreciation for art at a young age.
In order to safely re-open, a visit to the Art Lab will look a little different. Families will be able to explore our maker stations at your leisure. In order to keep our visitors safe, we will be limiting visitors to family and friend groups or ‘pods’. That means you’ll have the place to yourselves! Plus, free WiFi makes it easy to work and play from the space at your convenience.
The Art Lab is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays by reservation. Groups are limited to 15 individuals, and children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
