Thus was the first wealthy jewish family to settle in Norfolk. The house is beautiful and has tons of artifacts and gorgeous furniture. The tour is fun and very educational. Next door is the largest mall in the entire area. So enjoy, shop, eat and learn. Hope this helps David G.

Restoration of house and original furnishings are amazing. Social and business prominence of a family of a minority religion enlightening.

The Moses Myers house, built in 1795 was the residence of the first permanent Jewish family in Norfolk. A rare gem, the Myers House is furnished almost completely with items that actually belonged to the family. Knowledgeable gallery hosts take you back in time and help you to walk in the family's shoes. If you love historical houses, the Myers... More

I took the grandkids for the Halloween nighttime tour in the dark and they were so spooked! I'm only mentioning that because the grands now live in San Francisco, so I won't have to worry about creating more of a crowd. The tour is guided and very interesting, as I imagine, are the daytime tours throughout the year. I have... More

18th Century home of early Jewish resident of Norfolk. Nice view into domestic life at that time. Near other historic places.

I have learned, if you have a chance to go with a guide or do it yourself, always pick the guide, you learn so much more. Our tour was on a Sunday at 1, so had enough time to go to brunch first and then enjoy the tour. Have lived in this area all my life and this was my... More

This house is now under the watchful eye of the Chrysler Museum. Although it sits in the shadow of a major shopping mall, just stepping inside takes you back a couple of hundred years. The whole story of the Moses Myers family is interesting. When in Norfolk, make this one of your stops.

This place is excellent to get an idea of how the rich once lived. There is also an amazing permanent contemporary glass installation in one of the bedrooms which brings it all to life.
