Given the build up of the Norton anthology, I had expected to find a much more refined collection here. Since the place is under construction with a huge addition, the admissions price is right... free! The Chinese collection may be the one exceptional area of the collection.

They were still under reconstruction but did offer free parking and shuttle service directly to the main entrance. Only a few galleries open during this time. Nice place to stroll around on a warm afternoon.

This is an excellent art museum with very high quality works of art. The traveling exhibits are always well done and the cafe has delicious food. There are also fun, special events planned for children.

We decided to visit just because we were in the area, having never heard of the museum before. We were not disappointed. Give it a solid 1 to 2 hours to casually stroll and take everything in.

Under construction this museum, a classic West Palm Beach institution is free during the remodeling. We took a personalized tour with a guide that proved helpful and interesting.

There is nothing like a museum on a warm, sunny day, whether by yourself or with someone else, and the Norton is that special a place. The art is tremendously well curated and the facility is welcoming and shiny.

We went with a group of people and had a tour guide. They were very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. One thing I look for in an art museum is a gift shop and theirs had just what I needed bookmarks and magnets.
