Nice way to spend an afternoon . Price is great (free) place is bigger than it looks - we figured we be there an hour - could have easily stayed 3-4 hours.

This is a FREE art gallery. After all the high admission fees in the area this is great! Parking is very tight. The museum is lovely. We concentrated on the glass exhibit and never got back again as we had planned. If you like glass, like I do, you will really enjoy the wide and varied selection on exhibit here.

Fantastic museum filled with beautiful items. Do not miss this great place to visit on a trip to Norfolk. Will definitely go back on our next visit as we just didn't have enough time to appreciate all the offerings the museum had to offer. The Tiffany glass section was a mind blower all on its own. A true highlight of... More

There are not that many museums in the Norfolk/VB area that are dedicated to art. The new remodeling the museum just went through makes it look like a mini NYC Metropolitan Museum. Even though it is small, it has a little bit of everything, from Egyptian sarcophaguses to Tiffany windows. This would be a great rainy day activity or something... More

We came here on a recommendation from someone at the Virginia MOCA since we prefer "non contemporary" art, and oh my goodness are we glad we did! Two large floors at the museum, the first mainly occupied by a glass exhibit with over 10,000 pieces from all ages, styles and forms, and while we were there, an amazing Byzantine art... More

This museum has so much for people to see from glass collections to ancient Mayan items to European painters. It was wonderful to see it all. I loved looking at Manet, Money, Degas and Gaugin works. The also had beautiful American paintings, especially portraits of the money class. The glass exhibit is the 3rd largest in the country if not... More

Current exhibit, Saints and Dragons; Icons from Byzantium to Russia should not be missed. A great selection of various icons of various Saints. Each room is organized based on different themes. If there is a free tour with a docent, go on it and let a guide walk you through exhibit.

One of the most extensive collections of glass I've seen - from earliest examples in Greece and Mesopotamia to things you'll remember seeing at your grandmother's house. Be sure to take the time at Noon to go to the Glass Blowing Demonstration. I was there during the 'Saints and Dragons' - Icons from Byzantium to Russia, which was incredible. There... More
