The new Norton is in fact just that-a completely NEW museum. The architecture of Lord Foster, one of the world's greatest living architects, has completely redefined the visitor's experience.

Second visit after 2 years. Great job in the renovations. Terrific exhibition on movie posters; not to be missed. Skip the coffee shop - way overpriced.

Did not expect to find this gem in such a small town. My favorite part was the Chihuly hallway where you're literally walking underneath a well-light display of Chihuly glass resembling things you'd find in the sea. Enjoyed the sculpture garden as well as the...More
