A beautiful garden with new and different plants each season. Sculpture is very nice as well. A restaurant and gift shop on site with local items. Before Christmas, there are several weeks where the gardens are decorated with lights called 'Night of a Thousand Candles'...More

A refurbished plantation transformed into a Mecca of art, history, architecture and nature preservation. Learning centers, butterfly farm, interactive exhibits and activities set amidst lush greenery, pools of water and huge trees. The sculptures are so impressive!

Fantastic gardens in addition to amazing sculptures. A one of a kind destination! This was our third visit and we still haven't seen all there is to see.

The sculptures are cool I guess if you're into that kinda thing. The gardens are eh, not that much. I didn't feel the place was maintained all that well.

The Lego exhibit is not here this year, but we have "Ribbit the Exhibit" until July 9th. It's a charming exhibit of larger than life copper frog sculptures. Our guests have really been enjoying it!
