Great for a walk around and worth a visit

You can spend an hour generally walking around these garden looking at the sculptures, flowers and trees. Take time to just sit and enjoy the place.

Worth every step thru these gardens. Watch nature as you sit on one of the many benches, read a book or stroll thru the property enjoying all the art on display. Whatever you decide if you want to get away from the city bustle, definitely stop by !

The museum was closed for exhibit change. I went over to sculpture garden. It's got sections including a lovely Chinese garden with Kuanyin stone sculpture. Pergolas, palms and beautiful plantings plus ponds amidst some wonderful sculpture.

We did not go I to the. Useful, but you can tour the gardens at no charge. They are lush and beautiful. Lots of art and sculptures throughout the garden. Very peaceful.

Convenient, beautiful, relaxing, inspiring, what more can you ask for? The setting is gorgeous and parking is convenient if you arrive by car and the perfect walking destination from West Palm or any of the local hotels.

One Sunday in early March each year the Society sponsors tours of a half-dozen homes in Palm Beach. Tickets are expensive, but this is a rare opportunity to see how the other half--or one percent (or tenth of one percent)--lives and the money raised goes to a good cause.
