This is a true GEM. This is an outstanding collection of art and whimsical artwork. Be sure to visit the urinal in the men's room. It is a "hoot"

We have visited several times on our winter breaks. Reasonable attraction as they only request a minimum $5 (cash) donation - we usually leave more. Any time we have visitors, we take them here to experience all the colourful and creative pieces. Always a hit!...More

Was only able to see this from the outside as it closed for the summer unfortunately 3 days before we arrived in Sarasota but from what we could see this place is great I love quirky and this place sure qualifies.

Wonderful little Art Museum and it is certainly whimsical. Our tour was conducted by Marietta Lee, the founder and curator. It was a fantastic outing and I loved the diversity of the art. Highly recommend a visit when in Sarasota.

Have always been curious of this spot. My Son and I visited recently and I truly enjoyed the visit. Quirky, relaxing, inexpensive and quick. Was the perfect place to smile and relax.

Wouldn't recommend for little people since it's art on walls, and a garden stroll. Spent about an hour, mostly sitting in the rocking Adirondack chairs and enjoying the garden area. The garden area is worth the $5 just to see the spectacular oaks that grace...More
