I love a museum with a sense of humor! The glass collection is stunning. If you haven't been for a while, the spacious hall with contemporary pieces will get your attention! The paintings are grouped and curated very nicely. If you have a tired child along, grab a mini folding chair for him at the top of the stairs!

Over many years I've spent hundreds of hours in the Chrysler Museum. Especially since the latest renovation, finished in 2014, the place is gorgeous. It contains art from an amazing array of time periods and nationalities, plus the temporary exhibits are always worth visiting. Right next door is the Glass Studio where you can watch glass blowers at work in... More

Quiet with helpful wait staff in sedate clean environment! What else could you ask for? Try the burger...I believe it is organic and the fries are most excellent. Small selection of deserts but oh so tasty.

For the size of Norfolk, this museum had the blessing of Walter Chrysler leaving a great part of his excellent collection to the museum. His glass collection is one of the finest in North America. Chrysler also had an eye for the impressionists painting.

We took my in-laws as a treat for them and did not expect to truly enjoy the experience - we were wrong! The Museum has something to appeal to everyone and you cannot help but get caught up in the beauty of the exhibits! We also enjoyed lunch at the cafe.

The Chrysler Museum is one of those places that has such a wide variety of different genre's of art that it's a little difficult to describe. Happily, the breadth of the collection means that there was something for each member of my family to appreciate. My youngest loved the kids area, I loved the glass gallery, my husband loved the...

This is an amazing (free!) museum, currently having two (free!) special photography exhibits. Parking was (free!) convenient, and the glass studio annex holds a great (free!) demo most days at noon. It is a very beautiful museum with very pleasant employees and volunteers. Each room and piece of art is displayed nicely, not too crowded together, not too much walking... More

I visited the Chrysler Museum of Art with my family and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! What an extensive glass collection! It was a hot summer day but I needed to run out to my car to grab a sweater as it was quite chilly inside. There's a lovely cafe where I grabbed a cup of coffee to go and... More

The museum was a blast to visit, considering that it is always FREE. The art is beautiful, especially the glass exhibit. The staff is nice too, which makes a nice visit.
