  • Great collection. Would have been nicer except one museum guard was more of a stalker. Always right on younger people or smaller children's area even while being well behaved. Made it hard to enjoy works.
  • This is a very nice art museum that is current under going a major renovation. It is free until June '18. Then it will be closed until spring 2019. Well worth the visit. They change the are every few months, so check it out a couple of times.
  • Under construction. What you see is worth it(no charge now). Enjoy while you can. Hope they have reasonable entry fee when they re open. Museums in Florida tend to be overly priced.
  • Excellent Museum undergoing huge expansion. Great Art Deco sculptures and good European paintings, and an intriguing Chinese collection. Not much world-class art like you might expect adjacent to Palm Beach though.
  • This is a temporary rating as the Norton is under serious construction and while there are a few galleries open, there are more than enough other things to do in Palm Beach. Once the new building, designed by Sir Norman Foster, is open, I'll review again. It's now Christmas, 2017. From what I hear, there's at least another year to go before the Museum re-opens.
