This is the place to visit if you have an hour or six hours to fill your eyes and mind with Art. Free and easy to walk through. You can get close to some of the most wonderful art ever created. It spans the whole of human existence. This is a place you just can't hope to cover in just... More

Their glass studio is superb. I have taken several classes at the CMoA and the staff is friendly, and they have fun doing what they love. Nice to place to "make" memories.

My daughter and I stopped into the glass blowing shop for something to do one day. We were mesmerized watching them in action. At Christmastime we took a glass blowing class and made two ornaments each. It was such a great experience and we had hand made ornaments to give as gifts and one as a keepsake to admire each...

The improvements in the galleries were well worth the wait. The museum's extraordinary glass collection is now displayed in a manner befitting it's importance. There is now a nicer flow throughout. If you haven't visited yet, you must add this to your wishlist.

This museum is part of downtown Norfolk. The glass blowing exhibit and demonstration is amazing. Not to be missed. The main museum is a collection of art from around the world and throughout the ages.

For a city the size of Norfolk, this collection is world class. The building itself is beautiful, and don't miss the glass and the 19th century French collection!

Have visited this museum many times pre-and post-renovation in 2014. The glass collection, which is exceptional is now very nicely displayed. The glass studio which holds daily demonstrations is very informative and well worth the trip across the street. The museum itself is nicely balanced between painting and sculpture. There is no admission cost so makes it easy to visit... More

We got to the museum with just an hour or so before closing so we had to book! My main interest is late 19th and early 20th century art .. so we headed right to those salons. They have some nice examples of painting from Europe (Picasso, Braque, etc). They also have a nice assortment of marble statues (American). Although... More
