I wish I lived closer so I could come here on a regular basis. I drove about two hours to visit. The museum has great hands on exhibits that show Japanese culture, life and history. I didn't have time to see the theater or cafe because I arrived in the afternoon and the park closes at five. But I did... More

Amazing that such a haven of calm is within easy reach of so many people in South Florida, yet it has never seemed overrun with people on our visits. It is a great combination of natural beauty and carefully landscaped gardens. Plus, the Cornell Cafe serves very good food at fair prices

Beautiful landscaped trees around a lake fillled with koi, turtles, etc. Nice quiet walk with plenty of benches, no rush, take your time. Lots of water stations for the florida heat. 400 acres of beauty.

You'd never expect this amazing Japanese Garden & Museum in Palm Beach. Definitely worth the sweet low admission price. Plan to spend a few hours walking the easy flat trail and checking out the museum exhibits. Peaceful beautiful place that should not be missed, for locals and visitors alike!

Love coming here. It's an absolutely stunning set of gardens, and such a great place to just... breathe for a while, and get that sense of tranquility that so often escapes our everyday lives. Their festivals are a great introduction to Japanese culture (their lantern festival especially). My family had the membership while I was going through middle and high... More

What a great place to walk through and contemplate! Spend the day and even have lunch. This place is great any time of day. TIP: try to go when it's cooler so you don't get heat stroke.

If you want to be transported into a zen like atmosphere, this is the place to visit. Conveniently located, there is a museum and the most tranquil gardens to walk around. Spread out on many, many acres you follow a path around and just enjoy the quiet zen like atmosphere that is what makes Morikami so beautiful. Most relaxing and... More

I lost a bet and had to plan a day date for myself and my girlfriend. I thought I took a chance on this place and little did I know it was beyond a good choice. Tranquil is absolutely the word. Relaxing, cultural and beautiful are also the right words to describe the amazing gardens. The wildlife was amazing, especially... More
