  • Other than the Dale Chihuly Chandelier I found nothing worth seeing. My 19 year old daughter commented, "this isn't art. I can do this".  more »
  • Attended a wedding here. The ceremony room was very small. The dressing rooms were extremely small. The custodial staff were a big help and very friendly.  more »
  • Unusual exhibits often amazed that we get some of the artists we do. Good workshops, great gift shop, lovely museum and often good movies or plays there--weddings too!  more »

  • There is always something new to see here. It's a very nice space to view art and learn something new. There is a wide variety of art that can be viewed here. It's definitely an artistic center of Virginia Beach. Ilove coming here!
  • I love the Boardwalk Art Show they put on every June. Where many artists compete. As well as the rotation of in house displays
  • This place is clean, organized, and not too expansive. Its amazing going there at different times of the year and seeing soo many interesting pieces of art. I like to come here and relax and take my time looking at different types of art.
  • Perfect date night component! And perfect for art lovers!
  • This is a small but very powerful arrangement of art work. I keep coming for the new exhibits.

Where to stay in Virginia Beach

With over 10,000 hotel rooms, Virginia Beach offers comfortable and affordable accommodations for every type of traveler. Even with that many places to choose from, this popular resort area does get quite crowded during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to reserve your lodgings well in advance. You can stay just steps from the Atlantic by booking your room at one of the city's luxury resort hotels. To stay near the water for less, consider a budget-friendly inn with an ocean view.
