It was 1987 when I had to do a project for an art history class. The modern abstract collection was the best thing about the Chrysler museum. Apparently, the museum really took off when Chrysler bought it in 1971. And, it's a huge disappointment that...More

This museum is well worth the visit if you’re in the Norfolk area. There’s a little bit of everything but the most impressive is their collection of glass ranging from Roman glass to Tiffany. We had lunch in the museums cafe. It was very good.

Of course. This is the most amazing Museum, and I'm sure the docents will accommodate any tour you would like.
