  • 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!
