  • Stopped by last week for a visit. Most impressive facility -- excellent Japanese gardens, a nice little museum, an art gallery and a place to grab lunch!! Quite a bit to see and do. Great way to spend...  more »
  • Despite the summer heat, I could enjoy it. Like all attractions in this State, the Morikami is immersive, you are in another world. Not so much enjoyed the Museum because it has no air conditioning and holds heat. View the ceremonious classes from you is a delight.

  • beautiful gardens. DO NOT GO FOR ANY FESTIVALS. terribly organized and crowded. the lantern festival is a nightmare. go on a regular day and enjoy the garden the way they were meant to be. in silent admiration of the gardens.
  • A piece of Japan in Florida. It has a japanese house, japanese abstrat gardens; only sand and rocks. Relaxing, beautiful, instructive. Nice place! $15 per person. I'll be back!
  • Loved this garden. It was so peaceful and beautiful. I took my mother there for her birthday and it was the perfect place to connect with mother nature and enjoy great conversation. We also had an amazing lunch at their cafe which served Japanese food. And they had mochi! Which I haven't been able to find too many places that serve mochi in South Florida.
  • It's a wonderful garden with some pleasant sights. Certainly come with a budget in mind or you could easily overspend at the gift shop and dining but everything is reasonably priced
  • Its been six years since i took these photographs there and i absolutely love them still. I was so nervous all these years oosting these images. This garden is a game changer for anyone who doesnt enjoy outdoors. Great scenery, lots of axtivites ro get involve. Opportunity for hot or cold saki. Japanese room to walk in. Learn traditional tea ceremony. Butt loads of stuff
