This is major and prominent art museum for Palm Beach county. It is professionally administered and has diverse programs for art appreciation and education. They also have wonderful music and film events. Don't miss the cafe as it is top notch.

This gallery is first class all the way. Very wealthy patrons means excellent exhibits. Easy parking and a very pleasant place to spend a rainy (in Florida?) day.

Enjoyed this wonderful museum, which is currently going through a renovation. First visit and looking forward to seeing the improvements. Great time to get the flavor of this attraction - admission is free during the reno.

When here with a friend this past February for the 1st time. It's a medium size museum with very nice exhibits. I found out if you are with the police or sheriff's office & have a badge they let you in for free. Very nice ...

Was here briefly with friends on a Saturday afternoon. It looked like the museum was undergoing renovation, so only a fraction of their collection was on display. Especially enjoyed the George Bellows painting.

The museum is under-going renovations. Not much to see in their collection. Did enjoy a Thursday night of sting music, a salad and a short walk around the museum. Price is right: FREE. note: parking is in the back of the museum; not on Olive Ave.

Quite nice for a local museum, one can easily spend a couple of hours visiting the various galleries. There is a good collection of impressionists and visiting exhibitions but these don't change too frequently. One of the most interesting pieces at the Norton, in my vew, is a changing portrait that I find mesmerizing, on the same floor as the... More
