Norfolk History Museum

Norfolk History Museum

Opened just two years ago in the historic Willoughby-Baylor House, exhibits here reveal the richness of the history of Norfolk and Hampton Roads. The region's role as an international port and maritime center is a central theme, as is the area's military heritage and its decorative arts tradition, especially impressive in furniture and silver. The current exhibition showcases various aspects of Norfolk’s architectural, commercial, maritime and military history through objects from the Chrysler Museum’s collection and other institutions and private citizens.

We hope you enjoy our work.
