After a decade of marriage, it is hard to come up with innovative dates. We tried a glass blowing class at the Chrysler (champagne paperweight) and had a blast. We followed up with a cold work beer stein class and have returned for christmas ornament class. We were startled to find that we got to jump right in to working... More

An impressive and thoughtfully eclectic collection of artwork. I spent the day in here, and could have used more time. An absolutely wonderful museum with helpful and knowledgeable staff. This is not to be missed if you are in Norfolk. Lovely.

As you move through the second floor, you almost can't believe the number of rooms and collections available. It was amazing. We did not see everything, not even close. Definitely worth a visit. Also, it's free.

I visited for the glass gallery and was blown away by all this museum has to offer. A definite must see if you are in Norfolk. Don't forget to support the museum with your donation or membership since admission is free! You will not regret visiting and it may take more than one trip to get the full experience.

We had to be in Norfolk the following day and were looking for something else to pass the time after our drive down from Richmond. The three of us had never been to this art museum but have enjoyed art museums in many large cities so this was a great way to pass the time. The museum is very lovely.... More

We so enjoyed our first visit to the Chrysler Museum, and it won't be our last! It wasn't crowded, and we were able to walk the entire museum in just 2 hours. The live exhibit at the glass blowing studio was so informative, fun, and exhilarating to watch!

I went here mostly because a history buff was in our group. I ended up going to the glass section because I figured this would be most interesting to me and I did find it very interesting and that section is so large I spent over an hour in it just reading where art was made and when and some...

As long time fans of museums, we were excited to visit the Chrysler Museum of Art during our winter visit to Virginia Beach. We spent 5 hours there yesterday, Dec. 21, and enjoyed every minute. We started with a glass blowing demonstration at the museum's Perry Glass Studio and were delighted - and awed - by the masterful and articulate... More
