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.

Beautiful peaceful gardens with wonderful fountains, pergolas and sculpture. Easy to ger to. The Lake Trail is nearby and we'll worth the walk.

I am staying in the area and during a walk, I found this wonderful oasis of culture. I walked through the very nice garden, and spent time in the library perusing the shelves and displays. Unfortunately the sculpture garden was closed for a private event, so I didn't get to walk through there. However, the library has a good local... More

Beautiful peaceful gardens with intertwined beautiful sculptures. Beautifully kept the Japanese garden was a real treasure with the Koyie in several the ponds. The foliage was a lush and well-maintained and most were identified with easily visible markers. The bronze statues of Roosevelt and Churchhill sitting on a park bench lends itself to a great photo opportunity. Plenty of places... More

Gallery is in a former home with beautiful wood floors, high ceilings, and saltillo tile with a spanish flare. Arrive at least 15 minutes before gallery opens in morning to get parking. After I left two cars were jockeying for my spot. Use the extra time to walk on the bike and walking trail that runs through the site next... More

What a lovely place,tranquil, lush and beautiful. It is located just over the causeway from West Palm, convenient and a real treasure. The Garden Club of Palm Beach has maintained it, need I say more? So many great photo-ops, little gems around every corner.

I love the Society of the Four Arts. Each aspect of the arts is well represented but I especially love the gardens. The old stone wall surrounding trees and water features is so peaceful and private. I good place to reflect. The larger expanded gardens have a charming open pavilion, sculptures and paths with benches. I love the concerts and... More
