This museum is in a peaceful setting and although we didn't have time to tour the grounds, they looked gorgeous. We were surprised at the amount of American historic artwork (from paintings to guns to dolls) they have and enjoyed a bit of a history lesson. The museum is well staffed and well organized. If you take your time you... More

Great collection of fine art, sculpture, and firearms. Very impressed with the early presidential and civil war portraits as well as the Felix Kelly collection. Rare firearms were also a treat. Beautiful park like setting. I am a fan of Remington western sculpture and this collection is the best I've seen.

Norton Art Gallery is a treasure to Shreveport right in the middle of town. From the beautiful gardens to the incredible art exhibits both the special exhibits and the permanent art are a treat to see. Try and visit one of their many community events. The Art of Beer and the Valentine's event were fabulous. The staff is always available... More

The Norton Gallery is a great way to spend the afternoon. The grounds outside are beautiful. The static displays inside are amazing. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

We enjoyed all of the displays. There is something for everyone. Free, without a donation box in sight. The 40 acre grounds are open from 7 - 7, and are stunning. Wonderful flowers, birds, pathways, sculptures, benches and water features. No photography allowed, inside or out. Would have liked to take photos of the flowers and birds. Looking forward to...

The landscape here during azalea season (only a couple of weeks in early April) is one of the prettiest things I've ever seen. Waterfalls, rocks, benches, sculptures, and a sea of pink and white. The sad part is that no photography is allowed. However, this might make it all the more precious. You have to soak it all in and... More

What an amazing time I had on a date here at the Art Gallery. Don't let the name try and turn you away. The paintings and figures are absolutely stunning. Out back in the yard the beautiful flowers and the pond at the bottom make it for an amazing date to take your significant other on. I will definitely be... More

A nice average size gallery. General and Locality themed exhibits as well as a kids area. We enjoyed it a great deal.

I'll just keep it short and sweet. Free. Very interesting art exhibits and the building itself qualifies as art too.

I never would have known this was in Shreveport. I was amazed by what we saw. Really beautiful and great atmosphere. Something I would recommend to others and come back and visit myself. My husband is not into art but stayed and looked for hours without complaining.
