“Glass Studio!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The museum is now closed until sometime in 2014 - however the Glass Studio - with demonstrations and classes is open. What a great facility ... Professors with Masters in Art teamed with TA's who have BFAs conduct demos that show each and every step in blowing intricate glass pieces. Go!

“Real Monet”

The museum has the collection from Chrysler family. There is a real Monet on display. Glass collection is very good and interesting. There are also other paintings and historical objects (Japanese suit of armor and swords). Entrance is free.

“A wedding to remember!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The beauty of this museum is overwhelming! My wife and I married here in April of 2011 and it will be a day we will cherish (and I will never forget or I am in trouble). We never grow bored of looking at the beautiful galleries, glasswork, and changing scenes. I would highly recommend a day trip here if you are in town!

My favorite is always the Tiffany displays and also whatever special exhibit is going on. The folks make an extra effort to deliver the very best experience. Love going!

“Hidden Gem of Norfolk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

By rights, this museum should be in a bigger city. Great cross section of art and artifacts with many events and workshops for the budding artist. Going through a renovation at the moment, check the website for travelling exhibits.
