The museums focus in weaving its own collection in with the Rockwell images is to give a three-dimensional look at the post-war period and to engage younger visitors who may not be as familiar with the iconic American portraiture, she says. A full-fledged replication of a 1950s kitchen will be on display along with a lounge area where patrons can watch a film about Rockwell and play with Lincoln Logs and the like.
