  • A great hidden gem! the grounds are immaculately maintained with many sculptures, gardens and water features. In the summer they do movies on the lawn and even offer a blanket for you to use to have a picnic. It was a real treat to visit and the museum art was also a pleasure.
  • Stunning gem right across the street from the botanical gardens. Pristine gardens and sculptures, with a beautiful art gallery inside. Would recommend if having time, it's a truly beautiful and peaceful place.
  • Pretty friendly staff. They were really helpful with my project for school and we're really enthusiastic about the collections. Beautiful property.
  • A beautiful place hidden away that every visitor to Memphis should see. The impressionist gallery is spectacular and the gardens are gorgeous.
  • Beautiful place. Entrance is off of Park Avenue. The Bistro inside has nice sandwiches.
