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.

Wonderful museum and it's free and open to the public. Took my to young daughters here and it was really fun to watch them explore the art and not feel like we had to see everything since we can go back whenever. Really, really wonderful staff -helpful, kind, courteous. And, of course, wonderful art! They have a really nice variety from the Renaissance to Post-Modern, paintings, sculptures, photography.

An excellent cultural experience plus it's free! I had hoped to get to see the glass blowing exhibition across the street but time did not permit ... will try to see that on our next visit. It is a wonderful museum. I highly recommend it!

This is a huge museum with a lot of exhibits to view. Parking is free, entrance is free, and the art is beautiful. If you are in the area and don't visit here you are missing out. The non-western art is some of the best I have ever seen. Pieces dating back to BC are amazing to view and really show the history of the human race.

It's a wonderful art museum that has something for everyone. Very recently, they have added an interactive exhibit, where children can explore art in a fun way. The layout ofnthe museum, too, is very excellent. The lower level is dedicated to ancient arts from Africa and Asia, as well as an extensive glass art collection. The upper level is dedicated to art from every time period from early Christian arts to Modern and Contemporary works.

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!
