Visited the Norton on a recent rainy day. The collection is not comprehensive, but there is a nice collection of European and Chinese art. The special exhibitions were good. One was about toy cars and Barbies. Not high art, but interesting, especially for kids.

During the summer we took advantage of the Florida Residents get in free on Thursdays. We enjoyed the Wheels and Heels exhibit. It was fun to see the history of Matchbox cars and Barbies. That exhibit alone was worth the trip. We also enjoyed the China and Europe exhibit. The kids stayed very interested with the flyers they have at... More

For a nice low student price of $5, this air-conditioned museum was wonderful. It is easy to see everything in a a few hours. All the staff was helpful and the pieces were great. There are lots of paintings and each has it's own little plaque describing the painter or the era in which it was painted. Very informative!

My favorite thing to do when visiting a new town is check out their local art museum. This being my town I am a little partial to our museum. It's a such a fun little museum, they have special events for locals and they do a weekly themed evening during the "season" where they will have food and drinks or... More

Saw the industrialization exhibit. loved how they pulled up the carpets and left the bare concrete for the floor. my art history major daughter completely enjoyed it, while my HS senior son was surprised to find "stuff" to his liking. Really nice museum. will definitely keep on radar for future visits to area.

My most recent visit was precipitated by the Andy Warhol exhibition, which will be at the museum until May 25th. On display are his silkscreen works of Jackie Kennedy and Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. Mao Zedong and Troy Donahue, among others, are represented here. And, of course, some of his iconic Campbell soup cans. He did 32 such soup-can... More
