I have been fortunate and have traveled to Paris, London, Amsterdam, Bavaria, Madrid and even to the Soviet Union, but this is my favorite museum and there is no other like it. Perhaps because it was once a home and Mrs. Jack's Palace still retains the feeling of a careful hand placing every piece of art inside. There is an enchantment here I have not encountered anywhere else. Walking out into the open courtyard which blooms with flowers year-round according to the terms of Mrs. Jack Gardner's will, is something you can only experience and not describe. The antiquity she gathered together, the art works whether they be paintings, drawings, books, statues, parts of ancient buildings, furniture....it is something you will not find in any other location. This is a museum you must experience because no description does it justice.
