We went specifically for the glass blowing demonstration. It was eccellent. IF I lived in Norfolk I would be at all the events and join the museum. Website is very easy to navigate. I tried to find art activity in South East michigan to enjoy. But no ones website made it easy to find activites. Love Norfolk art locaitons.

So, I'm in town to take a class and I looked around for something to do. . This little museum showed up and I figured it was better than sitting in a hotel room.... It greatly exceeded my expectations. Thee are (currently) a couple of special exhibitions... one on glass and the other on Art in Computer Games... The Art... More

I took my 10 year old brother to the art museum right after it reopened after major renovations and there's so much to see and do, you'll need to make it a day trip to really enjoy it. I'm a huge fan of pop culture art and vintage photography, and there's plenty here to satisfy nearly any type of visual... More

My husband and I are vacationing in Virginia Beach for our anniversary, unfortunately today ended up being cold and rainy so we decided to head into Norfolk to the museum. We started out at the glass studio where we spent the first hour watching a class that was taking place and also looking around at the displayed pieces of glass... More

Spent a lovely hour touring the galleries. I especially enjoyed the glass collection (which includes great Tiffany examples). Nice contemporary art collection, too. The special exhibit was "The Art of Video Games" which did nothing for me, but I'm sure is loved by the under 15 crowd. And, best of all, it's all free.

The Chihuly garden is beautiful! We have have been to this Museum many time and are never disappointed. The recent renovations have significantly improved the building and the exhibits. On this particular occasion, we attended a wedding reception and the experience was wonderful in every respect.

Spent a fantastic afternoon here today. Newly designed and much more user friendly, the museum is a total gem! The "Art of the Videogame" was spectacular as was the Japanese Wood Block artwork. Free entry, easy access and spectacular exhibits make this a can't miss visit!

My husband and I were lucky enough to have been able to sit in on a glass blowing session which was amazing.

There are several advantages which attract to this museum: 1) unexpectedly large and interesting collection of different arts - pop art, modernism, installations, impressionism and others. Everybody will find something for his own taste. 2) it's free. 3) it's in the center of the city. Once you get inside the receptionist provides you with brochure about the museum and if... More

As the majority of the reviews state, this is a great museum and it's free! A lot of time we equate free with mediocre, but that couldn't be further from the truth with this museum! This museum is a collection, some may even say hodge-podge of art of all different mediums spanning from medieval to modern art. The Tiffany Glass... More
