Unbelievable collection right here in Shreveport. Definitely a hidden gem. Most impressive collection of 1st edition books in addition to all the art! They also have rooms full of antique guns, dolls, and silver. Something enjoyable for everyone!

You may want to check out their Facebook site for current displays. Also, the neighborhood has been commenting on the chickens seen over there lately. RW Norton Gallery on Facebook
