this art museum is not to be missed. The newly renovated facility is marvelous. The art installations are truly inspired. Walter Chrysler was a truly important private collector and he had amazing taste. Whether you want to see Impressionist artist, classic American colonial art, ancient art or the outstanding collection of glass objects plan on a wonderful afternoon here!

If you're in Norfolk, VA and do not stop by this museum, shame on you. I have not been since it's massive renovation, but I've heard it's bigger and better then ever. They include massive works from famous artists entwined with local talent. There's a genre for every taste, but why not sample the whole thing, it's free!

I visited this museum a few years ago, and found it to be okay, but I am much more impressed with its new and improved offerings. I liked the selection of modern art, which was not too 'out there' for the more conservative viewer, and I liked that at least a few interactive exhibits have been implemented. There were several...

The Chrysler Museum has always been a favorite but it's even nicer now that it has been renovated. A bonus is the new cafe which serves great food.

I couldn't believe the pieces they had on display for the glass collection-- specifically the Tiffany windows and lamps. They were gorgeous! Best of all, admission is free! The glass making demonstration at 12pm is also free and is across the street at the glass studio. Excellent learning experience. Loved my visit.

Great exhibit, I traveled 1000 miles to see this museum exhibit and the rest of the museum. It was worth it!

It was our second visit to this museum. First time we visited first floor, so this time-the second one. Our toddler fell asleep, we did not have a stroller, so a girl offered us a museum`s stroller! The collection is rich and interesting, from old masters to nowadays. The exhibition of Tulsa photoes was a little bit shocking, sad to... More

The museum and art was wonderful. The glass collection truly outstanding. I would visit this place again if I was in Norfolk. I loved the glass blowing and the children being encouraged to be part of the glass blowing process.
