There are plenty of museums and cultural attractions throughout Norfolk that are worth exploring during a visit to the city. 

            The Chrysler Museum of Art has a huge spectrum of pieces, from an array of mediums, spanning more than 4000 years of history.  The museum offers many hands on exhibits, which are both entertaining and educational.  Under one roof there are permanent collections, changing exhibits and educational opportunities. 

            Visiting the Battleship Wisconsin is an entertaining activity for the whole family.  The ship is free for visitors to tour, however certain areas are off limits due to the government’s confidentiality rules.  Visit the Naval Museum website for more information.

Town Point Park is the downtown site of major outdoor concerts, award winning festivals and special events each year. Boasting eight-acres of waterfront park, Town Point Park is also home to the Homecoming Statue and the Armed Forces Memorial.            

The Norfolk Heritage Foundation contains an interesting mix of nature and art.  They are open every day except Wednesdays.

            Virginia has loads of history associated with the civil war.  Norfolk is a proud participant in the Civil War Trail program that links many of the war’s sites, and shares them with the public. 

            Originally constructed in 1915, the Granby Theater was rebuilt, and today is a mirror reflection of its past.  Playing home to shows and performances, it is worth visiting.
