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.

We try not to miss the "Thursday Nights" when lots of activities take place. Exhibits, lectures, music, hands-on crafts. And right now it is all for FREE!

I've visited before the construction began and while I enjoyed the museum, I left wishing for more. Well, my wish is being fulfilled! They are expanding. Only a few galleries are open during this time but the exhibit called: Question Bridge: Black Males, is a must see. They do have a few pieces from the great masters works and on... More

We love the Norton! Filled with amazing paintings and great special exhibitions, not to mention a great museum shop. Its under construction for a new wing so it doesnt have as many exhibitions as usual but it is still wonderful.

There were very few pieces on display. I found the quality of the art itself to be quite lacking in comparison to other museums I've seen. Touring the museum took about 20 minutes. There is a guided tour that is available. To be fair, half the museum is closed due to renovations. I cannot recommend this museum as is.
