Rockwell Museum of Western Art

Finger Lakes

Based in Corning's attractive old city hall (built in 1893) the Rockwell's wide-ranging collection covers classic Americana and cowboy scenes, as well as more contemporary work by Native American artists and others.

It's a manageable size, so easy to tack on to a visit to the Corning Museum of Glass; discount combination tickets are available.
