This museum had two floors of displays. The works of art which were represented covered an array of periods from various parts of the world. Inspiring and at the same time enjoyable

Chrysler Museum was always a good cultural attraction for Norfolk, and the renovation has made it a GREAT attraction.

This lovely, middle sized museum houses examples of Mr.Chrysler's fine and eclectic tastes. The various genres make it an interesting visit for anyone, and the beautiful glass collection which is created on site is outstanding. My friends and I especially enjoyed the Thomas Cole exhibit and were lucky to have a very knowledgeable staff member explain the nuances of the... More

The staff were friendly and would even open doors for you. Sometimes, I feel that good staffing sets the tone for a good museum visit. Their glass collection, off course, is something to see along with their other art pieces. The exhibits are not as comparable to the Smithsonian's but it's a great experience just the same. The mood is... More

The Chrysler Museum is a wonderful place to spend time. The hotshop is state of the art and the demonstrations are very well done. The gaffers doing the demonstrations are very knowledgable and give very clear descriptions of the various processes before they start to work and while they are working. The Museum itself, after its extensive renovation, is a... More

If you sign up for a glass blowing class you'll be able to make your piece of art. Admission if free but donation are accepted. There is... More

We saw the glass exhibit. It is fantastic. The variety and the beauty of the glass makes this a very special collection. The display cases are perfectly illuminated and the explanatory material is easy to read. The design of the rooms is gorgeous with lots of natural light. Bravo!

If you like glass, you must visit this museum - their collection spans the centuries and is just amazing! There's also a hot glass studio across the street where you can watch the artists at work every day at noon.
