  • Beautiful art work still on display even through contraction. They have ancient Chinese artifacts and detailed descriptions of each paintings as well as the artists who made them. I went with my girlfriend recently and we spent 3 hours reading and appreciating all of the art work
  • Absolutely lovely! The art is amazing, and they have free live music, an open cash bar, and free art classes every Thursday for Art After Dark! You must go- it's free and a perfect place for a cheap date- and it's right by CityPlace so there is plenty to do before or after to have a wonderful time!
  • A wide selection of different Arts artifacts of the bizarre and interesting. Definitely a place for a creative genius like myself LOL. If you're looking for art of all sorts there's much to be found. I was definitely wowed by the live band playing in the courtyard. I'll be taking the kids next time.
  • My visit to this museum was both educational and inspirational. I left with the desire to create my very own artistic masterpiece.On the outside of the museum, the building looks like a miniature art gallery but I was pleasantly surprised at the wide variety of artwork displayed.Admission is currently free of cost. I’m giving the Norton Mueseum four stars since finding a nearby parking spot was a challenge. Otherwise, I look forward to exploring this museum again in the near future.
  • Under construction but accessible. Free admission during construction. Interesting variety of Art and special exhibit Gloria Vanderbilt Whitney painting and sculpture. Rating downgraded because of partial closure.
