Enjoyed seeing the work of Ann Weaver Norton. Her workshop with maquettes and un completed sculptures was great to see. For the plant lovers/gardeners the 300 Palm trees with identifying plaques is a real treat.

Unfortunately closed on the day of our visit, we viewed thru the fencing and fauna. A stunning home perched on the corner with big water views, the gardens offered a (partially seen) collection of impressive statuary and moderist items. The heavy wooded walk areas offered a unique and hidden view of some delicacies. We need to retuen an see the... More

If you're not careful you might drive past the Ann Norton house and gardens. It sits on a lovely residential street with just small, discreet signage. The first floor of the house itself is now a gallery of other artists' work in various media - paintings, metals, glass etc. All are carefully curated to present artists with perspectives as out-of-the-ordinary...

Kind of hard to find. It is in a quiet neighborhood next to the ocean. Well worth the admission charge.

Lots of different tropical palms on a 1.7 acre property with a number of sculptures in the garden and more in the studio. Unfortunately for us we attended between exhibitions and the main house was in the process of preparing for the Flower Exhibition which will start on January 6 and continue for 2 months. Nevertheless, the grounds are beautiful,... More

The gardens were very nice but I did not like the sculptures at all. I thought they were very unskilled.

Ann Norton was an interesting lady and considering she constructed most of the sculptures in her later years in nothing short of amazing. The garden is beautiful but full of lizards as is all of Palm Beach. I am afraid of lizards and lol clearly didn't think this particular site through. I was about to give up be the host... More

Even in the very warm and steamy afternoon, the Norton sculpture garden was an oasis. The docent gave us a very personal introduction to Ann Norton. We were given a laminated map to guide us through the sculpture garden and to her studio. The plethora of palms and flora were interesting and unique. The story behind them is very interesting...I...

Entry fee is $10 Adult and $8 senior/student, touring is self guided and at your leisure throughout the gardens and home. Not recommended for young children or... More
