Beautiful grounds!

Always something blooming; beautiful grounds with streams and small waterfalls leading to ponds filled with goldfish; great walking trails as well

This is more than an art museum. The gardens are lovely year round but especially in April. The museum has some beautiful American Art and French posters. Worth a stop and it is free.

Great collection of variety of paintings and statuary. They have a number of Remington's. Lovely gardens, especially in the Spring, located in a quiet residential neighborhood just off a Main Street. It's all free.

The museum was pretty but not great for kids young or old. It was free so we thought why not. We didn't expect our kids to love it but we thought we'd find a few more things they'd like to see there and we heard there was an outside area. We felt like we had to be quiet even outside.... More

I had never seen such a large collection of Western art until I visited the Norton. The traveling shows are often wonderful, such as the recent Audubon collection. The gardens are beautiful and always improving. we go to the gardens often to see what is in bloom.
