On an early Sunday we were, at first, the only guests and beneficiaries of an informal tour by a well informed and interesting staff member. Because the house stayed in family hands for generations there are many original items, including some terrific paintings. The family played a central in the economic and social history of the city and this is... More

this house dates to near the beginning of the existence of substantial residential buildings in a seaside town in Virginia. Its art and artefacts are excellent and diverse, as the port allowed for merchants to bring a variety of goods for sale, as are the docents, and there are many special events esp around holidays.

Thus was the first wealthy jewish family to settle in Norfolk. The house is beautiful and has tons of artifacts and gorgeous furniture. The tour is fun and very educational. Next door is the largest mall in the entire area. So enjoy, shop, eat and learn. Hope this helps David G.

Restoration of house and original furnishings are amazing. Social and business prominence of a family of a minority religion enlightening.

The Moses Myers house, built in 1795 was the residence of the first permanent Jewish family in Norfolk. A rare gem, the Myers House is furnished almost completely with items that actually belonged to the family. Knowledgeable gallery hosts take you back in time and help you to walk in the family's shoes. If you love historical houses, the Myers... More

I took the grandkids for the Halloween nighttime tour in the dark and they were so spooked! I'm only mentioning that because the grands now live in San Francisco, so I won't have to worry about creating more of a crowd. The tour is guided and very interesting, as I imagine, are the daytime tours throughout the year. I have... More

I have learned, if you have a chance to go with a guide or do it yourself, always pick the guide, you learn so much more. Our tour was on a Sunday at 1, so had enough time to go to brunch first and then enjoy the tour. Have lived in this area all my life and this was my... More
