Our grandchildren love the water feature, the plants, and most of all, the boat ride on Lake Whitehurst.

You want to goo to this museum if you want to see a great glass collection or a special exhibition. There is optional donation and most don't seem to do so. The glass collection is worth going a bit out of you way to see it. It isn't too far from VA Beach and it is a good thing to... More

This exhibit of American Impressionism is worth the visit. A year ago I was in Giverny, France and attended an exhibit of American artist and this was better. So happy to see an exhibit that celebrates American artist.

All the... More

A truly wonderful collection of paintings in a gorgeous setting. Fabulous glass collection. Changing exhibits of modern art. Small shop. An on site cafe would be a welcome addition to this attraction, although there is a restaurant. Even if you are not into art galleries and the like you should go, you will find something to enjoy in this most... More

Everyone thinks this is an auto museum! No!No!No! One of top 20 art museums in the US! And their glass collection is one of the top 3 in the US, with items going back to Roman, maybe even Etruscan, times. I think the other two notable glass collections in the US are held by Corning and Libby. Very interesting history... More

This was a free museum. It was beautiful throughout. There were so many different displays of types of art to appeal to most anyone. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
