The Norton houses a fine diverse collection of art and antiques--contemporary, representational, Chinese and most recently an exhibit of Nigerian artist, Crosby. It's a place not to be missed when visiting Downtown W. Palm Beach.

Had some time after visiting the sculpture garden. I found the Video and photo exhibit a bit pretentious. I did, however, enjoy the European and Chinese collections. Worth the visit

Our First visit to this museum showed how a refurb and planned expansion will bring back the glory days. The special collections are tasty and well curated. Ranked as the largest museum in FL, it will be a gem after the upgrade.

I enjoyed the permanent exhibit but the real showstopper for me was the photography exhibit by students from a nearby Florida high school. Very well done!

An inordinate amount of space not used for displaying art. Why not put art up and around elliptical stairway? Photo show was good, but European masters should include more impressionists. At least the new Van Gogh was given a prominent place.

Besides the beautiful landscaping, the museum is quite nice. There are enough nice pieces outside to make a casual walk-by enjoyable.
