This museum is a cool mix of modern art and classic paintings and sculptures. It is a worthwhile take. Note that there is a local trolley that does a free circuit from Tuesday through Saturday that stops here and is a great way to get your bearing in the area.

My favorite part of this museum are the Impressionists. You can spend more time than you think at the museum. I suggest you spend time on what interests you. Then make a plan to return to view other parts of the museum. It is not expensive nor large.

I've been to the Norton several times and don't miss it when I come to West Palm Beach each year. Over the years I've seen some wonderful shows here and each year there is always something that draws me in. This year it is the exhibit on High Tea and in true Norton style this is an excellent exhibit that... More

You can spend a considerable amount of time here as you view the works of many artists. I often take my students on field trips here and never tire of the multiple visits.

Well worth a visit if it is a bad weather day, tired of the sun or appreciate a small elegant museum. Good permanent modern collection with periodic special exhibits. Free parking across the street. There is a cafe with good service an an eclectic menu.

We spent 4-5 hours in the Norton Art Museum. It is a world class art venue with period pieces from all dynasties in China and sensational European and American artwork. The Impressionist paintings are outstanding. Artists include Rembrandt, Reubens, Renoir, Monet, Charlie Russell (Western artist fame), Picasso, Klee, Matisse, and numerous other famous painters. I have photos to attach. TIP:... More

I went to the museum with my girlfriend. The friendly staff welcomed us right when we walked through the doors and we felt at home for first time visitors. It is a wonderful little museum with different exhibits for all sorts of time periods, cultures, and histories. It is very affordable for students, and I can see myself going there... More
