We were primarily interested in the glass collection which was really quite comprehensive. There are displays of very early glass works that help show the evolution is glass making and blowing. There were items by Louis Comfort Tiffany and them more contemporary artists like Toots Zynski, Hiroshi Yamano, and Dale Chihuly. The museum offered free parking. Definitely recommend spending a...

Chrysler Museum has a little something for both seasoned art lovers and novice fans. Their cultured and wide collection is a days worth of awe and adventure, and their exhibitions are always exciting. If you are new to Norfolk, or not and haven't visited yet, I recommend you do. It's a great collection and is always an over all great... More

We spent several hours here on a recent visit to downtown. It is a nice Museum and well worth a visit.

Free admission. Great variety of visual arts and glassware. Paintings grouped by era and national origin. Friendly staff. My uncultured teenagers even enjoyed it and took pictures of the artwork. I was not sure what to expect from the museum and it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Highly recommended.

The Chrysler Museum is a great way to spend a few hours. They have a decent collection with something for every type of art lover and there are always interesting temporary exhibits. The building is beautiful, the location is great, and it is free! It is one of my favorite spots. Also check out the glass studio.

We visited when the "Big Yellow Duck" was in the water nearby. Inside they had a place to sit and rest. :) We visited some rooms with beautiful exhibits. I plan on going back when I have more time. It's free, so why not?

Very clean and modern museum grounds/displays. Very well kept and attentive staff. Glass blowing demo at noon Tues-Sun very interesting and informative. Don't miss it! Plan on at least 4 hours if you include the demo and fast pace walking thru the displays or a whole day if your reading the display information cards for half of what's here.

I've come to the Chrysler Museum for years but last year (year before?) they went thru a major renovation in the glass section. Absolutely beautiful! In the past there was an array of cases three deep with some of their best glassware. Now the Gallé glass is displayed most beautifully as is the Steuben and the contemporary exhibit is the... More
