We spent the morning starting at Paris Bakery for breakfast and went to the museum at 10AM. Thursday's are half price...we didn't know until we went to pay...that was a bonus. Their exhibits were vast. There was a traveling Andy Warhol and and Industrial Art exhibit while we were there. Great for those who love NYC as the industrial exhibit... More

We loved everything about the Norton but were especially impressed with the Impressionist collection and their gorgeous Venetian art glass chandeliers - jaw dropping impressive.

I've been to this museum as a guest of sister a half dozen times and now that I live in the Palm Beaches I plan to become a member. It's that good. There's always something new to experience and the exhibits are very well put together. On my most recent outing to see Polaroid photography I was treated to the... More

This is a gem of an art museum. It is a wonderful size...not overwhelming in any way. We went on two different tours and the docents were very knowledgeable.

This is an extremely well designed museum with parking, a cafe, a really great gift shop and a very good permanent collection as well as extremely... More

We saw the Norton's Andy Wahol exhibit, very interesting, as I'd only seen a couple of his iconic pieces (the soup can, etc). He was quite experimental and had a range of styles, a nice collection there. Also an exhibit of oversized gaudy jewelry made by famous locals and worn by the wealthy. And some other paintings as well in... More

The Norton Museum will surprise you with the depth of its collection! For example at this time there is an exhibit about Andy Warhol and a new exhibit on the Hudson River artists from the first half of the 20th century. Every Thursday evening "Art after Dark" presents a different gathering with docent led talks and entertainment. The permanent collection... More

As a new resident, I hated the fact that I had yet to visit the Norton Museum. So last week, I went with my house guest to check out the Andy Warhol exhibit. Wow! Were we pleasantly surprised! Based on the demographic and size of Palm Beach, we expected a museum with less "edge." But it was wonderfully, surprisingly top-rate... More

We expected a small local museum. This museum has the Wow factor, from Andy Warhol to Ancient China.
