Concierge.com's insider take:

This eclectic but impressive collection centers on post-1900 boldfaced names like Picasso and Matisse as well as Americana from Norman Rockwell and Edward Hopper. There are also some edgier pieces like Soutine's tight-mouthed Portrait of Madeleine Castaing, Henry Moore's Family Group, and Brancusi's shimmering bronze Mlle Pogany II. The museum was founded in 1941 and a new wing was added in 1997 to accommodate the growing collection. That's where you'll find its roster of Old Masters—the Brueghel still life has been helpfully annotated with all the plant and insect species depicted. There is an Impressionist room full of Renoir and Degas sketches, Gauguin, Monet, Cézanne, plus a typically tender Berthe Morisot. The new wing also contains one of Dale Chihuly's signature trippy glass installations exhibited in a see-through ceiling. If you have kids in tow, duck outside into the garden, where the tiled maze called Theseus and the Minotaur (complete with solution on the descriptive card) will cure any Impressionist boredom. Note that the Norton has a frustratingly small on-site parking lot: It's easier to park at City Place shopping center and hop the free downtown trolley.
