    The lecture was interesting though not what I expected from the title. The exhibit was beautiful and informative. It was a beautiful day in such a lovely place. Made me forget the outside world for awhile. I can hardly wait to go back.

    Great place to discover art! Exhibits are always interesting and unique. The grounds are covered in beautiful plants and flowers, which is always what attracts my attention. Food truck Fridays in the Spring/Summer are awesome too!

    Delightful garden and art museum! Very helpful and friendly staff. Fresh Flowers are many of the rooms, complementing the season and art work. Small cafe and gift shop are a nice touch as well. Amazing porcelain from Europe and the painting gallery is lovely. Perfume exibit on lone was very interesting and large.

    The garden is pretty during the Summer season. I got a free pass from the New Memphis Institute.
