Parking isn't too much of a problem even during construction, but there was insufficient signage directing people across the main drag to the parking lot. Parking on street was fine. It's a fun collection to peruse and breaks up all the painting with some nice Chinese porcelain, and artifacts, some going back to B.C.E. era.

If you enjoy viewing or owning good art, this is a great Museum to review some rare art pieces. I have visited the Norton in Pasadena, CA as well and they both have much to offer to lovers of the ARTS!

The weather was too windy for an enjoyable outdoor activity. So we went to the Norton Art Museum. Free parking and shuttle over there. The exhibits were very very limited due to contraction and the flow was a little tricky going between the different wings and the jewelry show. Some interesting and unique pieces of art. A good way to... More

It's so wonderful that the museum remains open and FREE to the public during the renovations. My daughter and I enjoyed a short visit there for her first visit.

It is a freebee and will soon have expanded space (much needed). It is a short time stopover between other attraction...like the antique district.

We had a great time there today! We saw the famous and newly acquired roof tiles and attended a lecture on Chinese architecture by a Penn professor. I personally hooked up with a docent tour of new works. And all of it was totally free ( even though we are members) because the museum is undergoing an ambitious renovation. Make... More

Norton Art Museum in West Palm Beach is a very small art museum with ambitious plans to expand its offerings. Admission is free during the construction period. A free shuttle ferries visitors safely from the museum parking lot a couple of blocks away to the main entrance. Docents were busy explaining various works of art in several of the galleries....
