Chrysler Museum Of Art

One Memorial Place

Founded in 1939 as the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Museum experienced explosive growth in 1971 when automobile heir and art collector Walter P. Chrysler, Jr. presented the city of Norfolk with his collection. Since Chrysler's death in 1989 the Museum has continued to grow and expand, building on his legacy with regular additions to its holdings.

This is a super awesome Museum! And it's free! Lots of really excellent art pieces very well maintained and with lots of context given. All the facilities are extremely well taken care of. The collection is excellent and there is a good contemplative atmosphere. There are pieces from prehistory all the way to the modern day. There is easily a week's worth of exhibits to see. And it's FREE. There is no reason not to go here!

Beautiful art museum, well laid out, a joy to walk through to see historical pieces all the way to contemporary. Also a wonderful venue for weddings and celebrations. I've helped a florist set up and break down there and the security, kitchen staff and caterers I've worked with, and other museum , associates are all friendly, helpful and accommodating! Its a stunning setting for special events!

I love this Museum. I love that it is free to enjoy. It is spacious, beautiful, clean, and visually appealing in every aspect. This time that I visited was on a field trip with high school students. The variety of Art on display was wonderful because the students found a way to be engaged if not interested in one room, they could wander into the next and find something different to appreciate. I especially loved all of the glass work. The parking was nice and easy. It is located very close to the other things to enjoying the neon district and I enjoyed walking and driving around after my time at the Chrysler to appreciate the art on and around the various buildings near them in downtown Norfolk This is a place that I need to remember to come back to more often. It could be an entire morning spent there or a shortstop just to appreciate one part of what they have to offer. It doesn't have to be a long visit, especially with convenient parking. Certainly a wonderful place to come and appreciate the arts.

My parents were honored for their 60th Wedding Anniversary yesterday. Sandy and Sammy and the rest of the staff were EXCELLENT! We were received, assisted and guided around the Art Museum all night. Anything we needed during the course of the celebration, they were there to help. We are grateful for their contribution to the great success last night was.

My grand daughter and I go it all. She takes classes at the Glass Studio (has taken 6). We love it. She really enjoys the museum exhibits. And she is only 11!!! How fortunate we are to have such a wonderful museum.
