Its a local museum and has an impressive collection for its size. Their glass work exhibit is phenomenal and they have a great collection of European and American work from the 1700s to present.

The current American Impressionist "The Artist's Garden" exhibit is just lovely. Numerous well-known artists and some not so well-known, but all interesting artwork. Go now as it ENDS Sept. 6th.

Awesome array of art. There is definitely something for everyone. My son and I enjoy coming here weekly and exploring a different section each time. We always see something we missed.

What a wonderful place. I love stained glass and they have one of the largest collections in the U.S. Check out the glassblowing demos too. They also have classes. I took a stained glass one, and am thinking of the make your own ornament class.

Awesome FREE activity in Norfolk. I could not believe the extent of their displays and the age of some of the pieces.

This is well worth seeing and was free to get in, you can leave donations if you like. Was disappointed in not seeing the glass blowing, but that was my fault for not going there first.

Great art museum with a large variety of pieces and changing exhibits. The best part is it is free and open to the public including the glass blowing building across the street. Definitely a must do of you're in the area.
