Williamsburg and Hampton Roads Sights

Chrysler Museum of Art

Updated 11/14/2013

Fodor's Review

By any standard, the Chrysler Museum of Art downtown qualifies as one of America's major art museums. The permanent collection includes works by Rubens, Gainsborough, Renoir, Picasso, Cézanne, Matisse, Warhol, and Pollock, a list that suggests the breadth available here. Classical and pre-Columbian civilizations are also represented. The decorative-arts collection includes exquisite English porcelain and art nouveau furnishings. The Chrysler is home to one of the most

important glass collections in America, which includes glass objects from the 6th century BC to the present, with particularly strong holdings in Tiffany, French art glass, and English cameo, as well as artifacts from ancient Rome and the Near and Far East. Currently the painting exhibits are closed for renovations and upgrades, scheduled to re-open Spring 2014. The glass exhibit is still open during these upgrades.
