There is a reason this is the number one activity in Norfolk, this collection is fantastic! The glass is stunning. The glass dress is breathtaking. Make sure to watch a glass blowing demonstration, though allow an extra hour for that activity. Wonderful art from many cultures. Don't miss this museum! Perfect for families with older children, but not ideal for... More

Wonderful museum of glass...history of glass through the ages. It was so impressive the amount of old glass that is on display...just fascinating for anyone who loves and has an appreciation for old dishes and crystal. The remainder of the museum was also very nice...the expansiveness of the galleries gave plenty of room for viewing even if kind of crowded.... More

Presents a diverse collection of art. The glass collection is especially noteworthy. We spent several hours and didn't see all of the permanent and special exhibits. And it is a free museum.

Glass exhibit was impressive, while other types of art offer good examples of the separate genres, in different rooms. We were there during the brand exhibit, which was nice to showcase the wild west. Plan for 1-3 hours. Free admission and parking. Try the nouvelle restaurant (great food, diner atmosphere) around the corner.

Had lunch first. First time there. I thought it a bit pricy for serving size. Quality was excellent as was service. Toured museum with daughter. It was lovely. Everything from the architecture to the exhibits. I enjoyed it fully.

This museum was fantastic. It probably would have been better if our sons weren't tired of traveling. I was very impressed with the collections and quality of the pieces. Worth the time.

Its free to get in, with parking very close. It would be easy to spend HOURS here as the collection is truly amazing, I particularly like the glass. There is a cafe. There are lockers to put you backpack. Definitely worth a visit.

The Chrysler Museum is a first-class museum with so very much to offer. And - wonder of wonders -- it's free tov visit! Even parking next to the museum is free. We've been to many large cities with fine museums and this is truly a museum to be proud of - and, I've never been to any comparable museum (that... More
