About the Museum
Museum currently closed for renovations. Will reopen 2/9/2019.
This museum is internationally recognised for its comprehensive collection of more than 7,000 works, including European, Impressionist and Modern masters and American art from 1900 to the present. The Chinese collection offers superb examples of carved jades and bronze vessels, while the contemporary collection embraces art beginning in the 1960s. In addition, many historically important photographers are featured in its extensive photography holdings. The Norton also presents engaging and exciting collection- and exhibition-related tours, talks, concerts and programmes for adults and children. In 2019, the museum opened a comprehensive expansion designed by Foster + Partners.
