Although it was not, in fact, raining when I visited the Norton on Oct 9th, 2014, it was a nice departure from my usual Friday routine. If you are local to South Florida, it's worth a trip there. If you find yourself visitng South Florida, ideally Ft Lauderdale or Palm Beach, and are faced with a gray day, consider the... More

The renovation is not complete, and the third floor...European collection, is closed. Yet there are so many great pieces by masters that this is a very worthwhile stop. The Chinese collection on the second floor has artifacts dating back to 1500 BC.

This was a very pleasant surprise, since I didn't expect such an excellent art museum in South Florida. Especially notable were the many European classic works of art. A must visit while in West Palm Beach!

The Norton continues to expand and improve and attract really interesting exhibits. Most recently, my son was here briefly before returning to college and we went to "Wheels and Heels". It featured a collection of Matchbox cars and Hot Wheels, the latter he remembered from his childhood, and Barbies, many of which and the outfits, sports car and dream house... More

Its an interactive exhibit, so they were able to walk the cat walk, dress up Barbies and play with the cars. Thursdays are free, but it... More
