The art is top notch. Shop is interesting. Cafe indoors & outdoors is a happy stop. with good items. Have been there for visits & a wedding. Gardens have to be repaired after Hurricane Irma. I'm sure they will be returned to beauty soon.

Really lovely inside and outside! Gorgeous flower gardens overlooking the water. Several diverse collections and a neat gift shop. Enjoyed the children's hands-on section, too!

My husband and I recently went to Cummer Museum. It had a lot of interesting art, history, and the grounds were so beautiful. The museum is located right on the waterfront.
