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

Great exhibit going on until October 26th. Hot wheels, Matchbox cars and Barbies! A hit for all young and young at heart. I took my granddaughters, 5 and 2, and they both loved it. 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

Not much into art museums, but the Barbie and Matchbox exhibit caught our eye. I am a Barbie collector and found the displays to be very good. I would have loved the interactive areas when I was a kid because I enjoyed them now as an adult. Cannot comment on rest of museum as I don't have the knowledge and... More

Thursdays during the summer are free for Florida residents. Thursday nights they also have fun stuff for children. The toys exhibit would interest boys (if they like cars) and girls (Barbie). Fun pictures to take (Barbie box and riding in car), walk on the cat walk (dress up), design your own car or outfit. Those are part of the regular... More

My two grown daughters and I visited this museum yesterday, arriving early and staying until nearly closing time! The reviews I read prior to our visit made it sound small, but we didn't think so. We were impressed with the permanent collection, as well as the current Wheels and Heels exhibit. The docents were the friendliest I have ever encountered... More

Free on Thursdays & Saturdays for FLA residents, this is a fabulous way to see great art & relax in a cool atmosphere. The exhibition on Barbie & match cars was creative and super fun, even for teenagers who generally spend their free time on social media! Highly recommend this as a stop during your visit to west palm beach.
