Wonderful meandering paths thru 15+acres of old growth trees, perennial and annual flowers. It's beautiful regardless of the season. Wonderful story of the Dixon family and their impact on Memphis. Impressionist art from their personal collection with additions purchased with the trust they created for sustainability plus traveling displays. This visit featured exquisite perfume bottle from a Japanese museum. Boxed... More

We loved this place. The art was gorgeous, the grounds were breathtaking, the staff bent over backwards to be helpful and informative. A special exhibit on "Scent and Symbolism: Perfumed Objects and Images" was on display when we were there, and even include information in the greenhouse about how perfume oils are distilled. Thorough enjoyed ourselves.

We stopped by after visiting the Botanical Gardens across the street and like this much better. The flowers were spectacular and easy to see and were identified. The Museum is well kept and had a temporary exhibit of American contemporary art plus has a permanent collection to view. The gardens and the Museum can be seen in under two hours.... More

Gardens are always in excellent shape with care taken for tranquil gardens and varying exhibits. Tulips and dogwoods in full force this last visit. If you are an educators they welcome you with a free admission with an ID. The volunteers there are always very friendly and willing to share their gardening advice.

This place is beautiful and I actually am considering becoming a member of their club. The art that they have their is awesome. They keep rotations coming in so that you are never bored. The staff is very upbeat and the garden area is lovely. I would recommend going even as a couple.

This is a small private museum and garden with a lovely Impressionist collection. This would be especially nice in scale for older travelers or for introducing a young child to art. The gardens are charming.

We were enchanted with the Christmas decorations on our recent visit. The museum is really lovely with its ribbons, bows, and wreaths. Even in winter, the woodland gardens are lovely with pathways that meander. The museum has a current exhibit on outdoor activities that is very original and includes some unusual paintings. The permanent galleries include Impressionist art from Renoir... More
