“Fascinating; well worth a visit for something off the beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We did not visit every exhibit here; the special exhibit was fully absorbing and absolutely fascinating. For only $5 each, we viewed a fantastic Wild West exhibit that outdid our expectations. For free, we could also have viewed a photo galley focused on the Florida Wetlands, and some lovely gardens. If all their special exhibits are as well done as this one, this is a not-to-be-missed institution. Plenty of Monday morning parking available, clean restrooms, courteous and informative staff. The Society is on the Lake Trail, and within easy walking distance on that Trail from Flagler house.

“Old money and ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

We have been there several times to see the National Theatre Live productions and were impressed by the stately architecture and ambience. Plentiful free parking lot is right on the intercoastal and you can stroll along the path leading from the theatre,

“Fantastic gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

If you like gardens then you will love the diffenent gardens (Chinese, tropical, formal etc.) to walk through across the street from The Society of the Four Arts building.
It is really enjoyable if you go during the winter when the temps are in the seventies which allows one to linger and investigate the varied art work in the parks and even the colorful fish. And it is free!
