  • Fantastic experience. Must give it a try. I was apprehensive but they set you up with the right props and you just get lost in your creation. I absolutely loved it, very good art therapy I recommend....  more »

  • This is such a neat place! Everything to paint and decorate a mermaid, dolphin or seahorse. Such a great experience!
  • Our group had a fantastic time here! We originally had reservations at the Mermaid Factory in Norfolk, but were worried we'd be rushed to get back for our dinner reservations. Thankfully it was on a slower weekday and they were able to take our group even though were were a few minutes behind their start time. The girls working were very helpful and got us started right away. There are tons of paints to choose from and also little embellishments for a small extra fee (starting at .25 cents). It took our group about 2 hours to get our creativity on. They box your mermaid up to help keep her safe during your travels. They also have a little shop with mermaid merchandise. If you're looking for a fun souvenir you can customize, this is the place!
