The product of one family's passion for art, Chrysler Museum of Art spans thousands of years of history. Home of Walter P. Chrysler Jr. 's art collection, the museum features 30,000 pieces that give a comprehensive view of the development of art forms over the course of human history. In addition to the main, Neoclassical building, the museum also owns two historic homes downtown. Several tours address a variety of interests, including the elements of art, the ancient world, mythology, and the history and science of glass. You also might find a film screening or lecture here as well. Plan my trip to Norfolk with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

This is a great place to go with your friends and family. They have many exhibits to enjoy and a lot are kid-friendly. They are good for class field trips too!! When entering the place you are greeted with this beautiful double spiral staircase that leads to the Juliet balcony. Not only is it dreamy but it leads you to the top floor that is decorated with many different types of paintings and sculptures.
What a truly amazing place. Sooooooo much to see. We focused on the glass and saw the exhibits and the glassblowing class. It was entertaining and educational. The paintings and photos are wonderful too. Super clean, everyone is super helpful. A must afternoon in Norfolk!
