  • Great grounds to walk around and explore. I enjoyed the art installations along the way, as well. So many flowers and plants to look at! The cafe had great food. The gift shop had cute trinkets too
  • Spent the whole day exploring. There is so much to do here, from visiting the windmill to journeying through a maze to viewing nearly century old cars! I'm definitely visiting here again.
  • We loved the museum and the unique and peaceful environment. It's a must-see even if it's not on your way.
  • This place is magical. So gorgeous and especially love the Hidden Hollow. Best playground we've ever been to
  • This is a great little gem. We only have about 2 hours and could have made it 4 (we didn't even make it to the museum, we were too busy exploring the gardens). Definitely worth exploring if you like gardens. Also, it is pretty accessible for people with wheelchairs.
