Founded in 1939 as the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Chrysler Museum of Art became one of the nation's leading galleries after Walter P. Chrysler Jr. moved to Norfolk. Together, with a glass studio and sculpture gardens, the museum offer visitors a full day of enjoyment and a constantly-changing view of their permanent collection of over 30,000 works of art. That collection includes ancient pieces from each continent, works by Renaissance masters, and leading American and contemporary artists from around the world. The museum also operates two historic homes on Freemason Street (Willoughby-Baylor House and the Moses Myers House).
