  • 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).
  • Lovely Home on the Water, Beautiful Gardens, occasional exhibit on the grounds, bring a picnic, share the history (6/'17-10/17 see burning man exhibit.. FASCINATING!)
  • Awesome historical artwork and artifacts mixed with contemporary rotating exhibits. Great water location which is perfect for their Thursday night concerts.
  • The night exhibits for the art of the burning man are amazing! It is entirely possible to spend 3 hours touring the grounds and museum. So glad we found this place tucked away!
  • One of the most beautiful places to visit if not for the museum then for the grounds themselves. Very well maintained and full of beauty around every turn.

Where to stay in Norfolk

A stay downtown is the best way to access all the central attractions and the harbor. Most of the downtown hotels are chains known for providing luxury and multiple amenities; however, there are a few independent inns and bed and breakfasts. Some of these offer full suites.
