Very interesting. Glass art, simply lovely just to look at. Viewing the actual glass blowing class was great. Hot, but fun.

Whether you live here or a visitor this is a must see in Coastal Virginia. The website is very helpful. It will give you a schedule of events and information on the museum. If you have an hour or all day you really need to stop in here.

As you enter the museum you come into this beautiful hall. The building itself is a sight to see. The layout is simple to follow as you move through different rooms. They have a fantastic collection of paintings and sculptures. Some better known artists than others but everything is lovely. There are nice descriptions along side each piece. We missed... More

A wonderful museum with something for everyone. The glass exhibits are outstanding as this was "Walter" favorite. The museum is constantly bringing in new works as well as rotating traveling exhibits. I cannot remember how many times I have visited, but each time leaves me wanting to return. Have to give a shout out to Walter Chrysler was without him... More

The Chrysler Museum has a wide variety of art works that would please almost any type of person interested in art. There are two floors of art that range from glass to photographs. The museum also has a restaurant and a gift shop. It is a great way to spend a day.

The Chrysler Museum is an excellent place to spend a lovely afternoon. The art collection is lovely and boasts a few pieces by major artists. The glass collection is extremely unique and instructive beginning with quite a few early Roman pieces and proceeds through the ages of glass styles and techniques. The glass blowing demonstration was fun and interesting as... More

The Chrysler Museum of Arts is a beautiful place to spend a Saturday or any day. They always have something new to see or do. They have family weekends, where there are hands on events for kids and family. I think these weekends are free.It's a great place to go for friends or couples to enjoy the sights and talk... More

I just went to the museum and had the honor of seeing the Herb Ritts "The Rock Potraits" exhibit, which was fantastic. We had gone previously and saw the art of video games and that was excellent as well. The museum itself is beautiful and there is so much more inside.

If the large banner about the #HerbRitts collection of Rock Star photographs & film hadn't caught my eye on a quiet Saturday morning drive through Norfolk, I would have missed a real gem in the heart of Norfolk, VA. Not only was the Ritts expo extraordinary, the rest of Chrysler Museum of Art and adjacent Glass Studio, had an astounding... More

This was the best exhibit since the video game exhibit. Always a great way to spend a couple hours. Still need to hit up glass studio.
