We recently saw Monet's Nymphéas at the Norton and was pleasantly surprised with the collection of art in the main collection. After taking a 45 minute tour, we learned so much about the artists, selected artwork and how to look at art. Looking forward to returning to the museum soon for another round of inspiration.

The Chihuly ceiling is amazing. Stretch out on the sofas and gaze up. Move to the next sofa or..move the sofa - you need to see the ceiling from every position. The rest of the collection is excellent. Several paintings have odd and hard to spot peculiarities - keep your eyes open. The jade is stunning.

Norton Museum is the perfect way to spend your morning or afternoon. They have great exhibits - the museum is small enough to enjoy the collections they have. Pleasant cafe with a good menu and nice outdoor area in the center of the museum. My favorite is the room with the Chihuly ceiling. It is absolutely wonderful! Feel free to... More

We were wandering around West Palm Beach for a few days with no set plan, so we ended up here for a couple hours. Nice mix of American art, ranging from realism to impressionism to modern. We were drawn in by their photo exhibit on The Blank Panthers of 1968. Remarkable how much their pleas for basic equality ring true... More

Really enjoyed the China, Jade, and pottery collection which is part of their permanent collection. The museum also has a nice selection of artwork including works from Monet, Renior, Picasso placed throughout their permanent collection of fine arts. Currently an exhibition was being shown about cars, trains, and planes, and their designs which we found very interesting.

High Quality collection; enjoyed my visit immensely for the Van Gogh exhibit. I went along, my first time to the Norton, and found it tranquil but I was also very impressed by the wide variety of artists and eras available for view.

The Norton is a quality art museum with a widely varied collection. I am not a big fan of oriental art but the oriental art collection at Norton was for me, the highlight of the visit. The collection is made up mostly of ceramic, bronze and jade artifacts, many in remarkable condition. The European and American collection are also good.... More

Worth the trip just the see the Dale Chihuly glass work. It's breathtaking. Great museum to visit on a rainy afternoon. Lots of character.
