I have noticed drops of water on the leaves of some of my houseplants. Is there too much moisture in the room or in the soil or is this normal?

Welcome! to NGA

What kind of plants? Photos would be helpful also.

livelovelaugh Welcome to NGA. Welcome!
To give you good answers it might be best if you give us more information. What type of houseplants - both common and botanical names if possible? What is the temperature/humidity inside your home? And if possible, can you take some photos of this moisture that you are seeing on the leaves, and step back and take photos to show the entire plant and the area where it is growing inside your home. Thank You!

Welcome! Where are the drops of water, are they around the leaf edges as in the pictures in the link below (called "guttation") or are they scattered over the whole leaf surface? As Daisy says, a picture would help if you are able to post one.

The Wiki article on guttation is very good:
