We were all surprised not to have read or heard about this museum before; their collection includes Picasso, Miró, Reubens, Degas, Pizarro, Manet, Rockwell and the list goes on and on. Beautiful well lit galleries and a lovely garden in the middle. We will be visiting again soon!

This is a nice place to visit anytime. The entrance fee is a little steep, but there is plenty to see. The Permanant collection is excellent. I am not very enamored with some of the special exhibits . The glass room is superb and different.

A great place to visit on a rainy day. Wonderful collections with a room dedicated to Chihuly. Before visiting West Palm, I always check to see what they have for a feature exhibit .

Just saw the Conde Nast Fashion Photography Exhibit, wonderful. Don't miss the Chinese Art Exhibit part of the permanent collection. The Norton never disappoints and PB County residents get in free one Saturday a month, don't remember which one.

As a transplant from NJ I assume I am little spoiled by the NY museums. Beautiful building but not overly impressed by the exhibits. Maybe it was just the time of year we chose to go. I will return and give it another try.

This small regional museum, which grew from the collection of its patrons to its present size, is a real treat, with something for every taste. The breadth of the collections make it a great intro for new gallery-goers, and it's depth rewards the real devotees. Especially long in Chinese and Modern collections, the Norton will hold your attention and keep... More

As a former New Yorker, I am not impressed with this museum in regard to their art collection. Some of the more modern pieces are not what I would expect. The building itself it quite impressive and they have a permanent room devoted to a Dale Chihuly installation, and I always enjoy his work. They have some wonderful programs during... More

Norton may be a small museum , but the amount and quality of art is outstanding. It is such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Great areas to sit and just enjoy the art that surrounds you.

This an intimate, elegant museum. The exhibits, both traveling and permanent, offer diverse options for visitors. In the past, my family has seen a Lego exhibit, a Super Hero exhibit and the traveling glass blowing show from the Corning Museum of glass. It is also a wonderfully peaceful place. There is a room off to the side on the first... More
