This house is now under the watchful eye of the Chrysler Museum. Although it sits in the shadow of a major shopping mall, just stepping inside takes you back a couple of hundred years. The whole story of the Moses Myers family is interesting. When in Norfolk, make this one of your stops.

This place is excellent to get an idea of how the rich once lived. There is also an amazing permanent contemporary glass installation in one of the bedrooms which brings it all to life.

This is a great short tour to take to learn about some of the history of Norfolk. It is free and the staff really cares about educating the public about the history. I highly recommend it for a short stop.

The structure, history and contents of this 200 year old house are amazing. Since it was continually occupied by 5 generations of the family, 70% of the furnishings in this are original including 2 Gilbert Stuart paintings. A very interesting and amusing tour guide also.

I went there after Christmas. I enjoyed the visit. i enjoyed the tour that was given. It was real interesting. Some of the grounds was taken because of the parking garage. It looked different from 20 or 30 years ago when I was young and in school.

I went to this property because the Chrysler museum was being renovated and it didn't disappoint. The young gentleman on the front desk gave a super overview of the museum beforehand. Lots of original furniture and paintings, together with a clear information timeline.

I love historical sites- the area is rich in sites. We would read about for example George Washington as a child and visit his home the next day. The Moses Myers House is a wonderful local surprise that is passed by every day traffic. Take the time to smell the roses.
