This is an extraordinary museum with great permanent collections and innovative exhibitions. Thursday nights are wildly popular with live music, special films, wine bars and special tours. Cynthia West Palm Beach

We enjoy the Norton and try to visit once or twice a year. Hadn't been there for many months so was surprised at all the building action. First of all the museum now opens at noon, is free of charge during construction and there is a small bus which runs every 20 minutes that travels from the parking lot across... More

Nice little museum on a hot summer day. Great size for our teen's attention span. Nice place and nice courtyard. All well maintained. Nice mix of art. A good way to spend about 45 minutes.

There is a sun room with beautiful glass blown sculptures in the ceiling. Do not miss it. The traveling exhibits here are sometimes really nice and unique. They do operate at various times though, so watch for them. Each floor has different types of art, with the top floor featuring some pieces that are not very kid friendly. Unless you... More

I visited this nice museum with my teenager. I think he was the only one below 30 years old😀. This museum offers nice variety of paintings. Unfortunately the premises were just under renovation and the selection of items was rather limited. Though the museum was free so it can be recommended anyways.

The times I've visited the Norton I've really enjoyed it. They have a nice base collection and they have temporary collections that cycle through each month. If you are a resident of Palm Beach county then you get in for free on Saturday. For that price there's no reason to pass it up!

The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida is a world-class museum with an extensive collection of works from national and international artists. A visit always provides something new of interest. The museum is undergoing an extensive renovation and during that time there will be no admission fee. This is a wonderful opportunity for regulars and first-time visitors... More
