Museo de Arte Popular Abby Aldrich Rockefeller

Cuando Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, esposa de John D. Rockefeller, prestó parte de su colección de arte popular a la Casa Ludwell-Paradise en Williamsburg en 1935, no tenía idea de que sus artículos eventualmente servirían como el núcleo de un museo que lleva su nombre. El Museo de Arte Popular Abby Aldrich Rockefeller abrió originalmente con 424 objetos, todos donados o recolectados por la Sra. Rockefeller, pero hoy en día, el museo cuenta con más de 3,000 piezas y es una de las colecciones más grandes de arte popular estadounidense.

Fundado en 1957, cada centímetro del sitio cobra vida con colores llamativos y una artesanía intrincada, todo contando las historias de la vida popular estadounidense. El museo presenta colecciones de juguetes de madera, tallas y costura, además del arte. Muchos niños disfrutan de la exhibición centrada en animales "Down on the Farm".
