  • Went on free admission Friday. Very very nice experience. Even if your not into reading all the info next to paintings and pieces of art, it’s still a fun experience. Highly recommend the garden...

  • This gallery has some interesting art, but I wouldn’t go out of the way to visit, & wouldn’t go with small kids. Definitely a one & done.

  • What a delightful surprise for a first timer! Museum and botanical garden combo definitely was the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon while visiting Jacksonville for the week!!! The museum art was impressive and unique! Most of the art was captivating and displayed with taste! The grounds were beautifully kept and each gallery room was one surprise after another! Truly enjoyed that aspect of the museum experience! The botanical gardens were my absolute favorite!!! Exquisitely kept and photo perfect! Their luscious gardens were a dream to walk through and offered a magical experience. It truly was a wonderland to discover all the areas. The map provided helped navigate it but it’s a paradise to get lost in it! Definitely a must visit when you’re in the area! Highly recommend it for a solo visit or with family!
  • The gardens here are absolutely captivating. I could’ve stayed here for hours! The view of the river is gorgeous and the greenery is stunning. Great for a photo backdrop. The best part has to be the baby raccoons we saw, though. Very serene. The art was also very interesting, especially the remaining room of the house. Great way to spend your evening!
  • Beautiful gardens on the river...plenty of sunny & shade spots, lots of great photo spots & an opportunity to picnic in the gardens. The huge live oak trees are breathtaking...winding limbs that touch down to the ground & continue growing back up. Pictures don't do them justice. You need to be immersed in them to genuinely appreciate their enormity. We spent all of our time enjoying the gardens. Next time, we'll explore the artwork inside. Thanks to Bank of America for free admission on the 1st Sunday of each month.
  • The Cummer Museum is a "must go to" place in Jacksonville. The free Tuesday and Friday evenings are a delightful benefit. When we have out of town visitors, one of our touring stops is the museum. We love the art and the wonderful gardens. We have happily paid for entrance as well as enjoying the free hours on multiple occasions.
  • This museum is great, the gardens are spectacular. The interactive section for children is amazing. We enjoyed our lunch on the patio. Tuesday afternoons are free admission. Gift store is lovely.
