  1. If you like video games, there is still time to check out the exhibit “The Art of Video Games” at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk. My famiy and I went over the weekend and my 12-year-old loved it!! There are games you can play for free–including a large-scale Pac-Man game. The exhibit includes consoles from old and new games as well as other games you are allowed to play. My son and I never played “Flowers” before–loved it! Here is a link to further information:

    While you’re there, check out “Shooting Lincoln,” a photographic exhibit of the days after Lincoln’s assassination shown in photographs taken at the time and “Chihuly in the Garden,” an outside exhibit in the Museum’s garden. I am an ardent Chihuly fan and it is just lovely.

  2. If you love video games, you might want to check out the exhibit, “The Art of Video Games” at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk. My family and I went yesterday and my 12-year-old son loved it!! The exhibit includes game consoles, both old and new; I showed my son what a Commodore 64 looked like. They have games you are able to play in an arcade-like setting as well as displayed on the wall. We played Pac-Man in large screen! Very cool! Here is a link to the exhibit on the Museum’s web site:

    While you are there, check out two other exhibits: “Chihuly in the Garden” and “Shooting Lincoln: photography and the 16th president.”

    The Museum has a small outside garden and Chihuly glass sculptures have been integrated into the garden. The dogwoods were in full bloom yesterday and the whole effect was simply beautiful!

    The Lincoln exhibition includes phtotographs taken days before and after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Each photograph is exhibited with loads of information about what you can see in them. Simply phenomenal!

    The Chrysler is free (they accept donations) and is a wonderful place to go, especially now if video games are your thing!
