Great facility with lots to appreciate. My wife and I are fans of art depicting scenes from the Old West, so were very pleased with the original paintings and sculptures by C.M. Russell and Frederick Remington, as well as Western landscapes by Thomas Moran, Albert Bierstadt, and painters of equal and lesser notoriety. If you are not familiar with this... More

My wife and I went here on a Thursday morning and essentially had the museum to ourselves. Firstly, it is entirely free! They don't even ask for donations or have a gift shop. Other than not being able to take photos anywhere inside or on the grounds, this museum is fantastic - truely! There is an excellent little bit of... More

I went on a trip to Shreveport and looked on TripAdvisor for things to do. The R. W. Norton Art Gallery got good ratings, so I put it in the GPS and got there easily. If you are interested in art and history, this is the place for you. The fact that it's free makes it even better. Each of... More

It was too hot to visit the garden but the Art Museum was huge, great and free. We got there at 3:30 and they close at 5. Had to rush a little to see everything but we really enjoyed it.

Wow! I read the reviews but was not prepared for this awesome museum. We spent over two hours here and could have spent much longer but they were closing. There are beautiful paintings, lots of sculpture by Remington and others, War posters, guns, crystal and other collections. I was most enthralled by the doll collection. I could have spent a... More

The Norton has an amazing variety of exhibits from oil paintings to watercolors to sculpture to textiles, glass, firearms, dolls, books -- the list goes on and on. And the museum is BIG -- you probably need to plan to be there a couple of hours to see and absorb everything that's on display. And it's free! As in most... More

I have to use 100 words to get my review accepted but words can't describe this place. First of all let's talk about cost to enter this fine art museum. There is none, it is completely free, not a penny. No donation boxes or membership applications either! This is a very big building and there is art of every description... More

There is truly something here for everyone. The variety of arts is amazing! There is a huge collection of Stuben glass, Remingtons, a gallery with dolls, we didn't get a chance to see it all but that definitely just means we should come back soon! Even if you could care less about art they have a great gun collection.
