  • A precious gem in Norfolk. A must-see, must-do! Fabulous art pieces from all over the world dating back thousands of years, and nice views on the stroll around the gardens.
  • Beautiful grounds and very interesting house. We were lucky to hit upon free admission day. I might not have been so ready to pay full admission now that I know that the inside is really limited. But it is very interesting.
  • We first came to this place for the summer music series on the river and fell in love. It's such a great place all on its own and then add in the fact it is a museum and has art. Beautiful location and great staff :)
  • The Hermitage is a gem. The grounds are beautiful and large enough for a stroll. Sunsets offer a waterfront show nightly. The museum brings in quality exhibits and promotes creativity with their craft nights and art school. Event parking is street side and that's a drag (for visitors and neighbors alike).
  • Visited for a burning man event last week and had a great time. Several very cool sculptures and artwork that were well worth the drive out.
