Spent a wonderful two hours walking through the serene gardens at Morikami. Wear comfortable shoes - it takes about an hour to get around. Plenty of benches, though, and water dispensers camouflaged by large wooden boxes that blend into the scenery. We ended our trip with a visit to the small cafe there. I found the menu a little on...

We used our smartphone to access information about stops throughout the property. This really enhanced the experience of viewing these beautiful, pristine gardens. There is a lot of variety in the types of gardens and structures that can be more fully understood with this added perspective. The museum is nice but not extensive. However there are a lot of interesting... More

What a fun thing to do. The gardens are beautiful and how nice to spend a Friday night strolling in the gardens. The gift shop is a must. There are great gifts for everyone. Goof variety. The only problem is they need to have more set ups to get your food and drinks. The lines were way too long! Very... More

The Murikami Museum & Japanese Gardens is a great place to visit if you are in the Delray Beach area. There are six gardens representing Japanese garden styles from six different centuries. We were fortunate to have a guide walk us through the gardens and explain symbolism in each garden. There are many lovely places to sit and contemplate the... More

A beautiful museum & garden. The museum is full of Japanese art, clothing and miniature house rooms. The gardens are beautiful and very well keep. You won't be disappointed. If you have an hour or two, head their way.

It is a great place to go with family or friends and have a quiet peaceful day. You can walk around the beautiful grounds, have a nice lunch or picnic and enjoy a day doing something different.

When you step in you just cannot believe how beautiful this place is. When everything else seems to be just so crowded and loud, this becomes such a welcomed change. Gardens are impecable. However I just think the staff needs to lighten up a little. I have been there with my two kids. As soon as I go in I... More

I went in wanting to try the whole experience, the Cafe left a lot to be desired. First the sign says wait to be seated, finally someone says sit anywhere then next thing a lady is saying to follow her. We order, food was ok. service was lacking to say the least, I ask for the bill. I sign and... More

Went to Sushi & Stroll night fir the first time. Well worth the price to see the gardens, have some wine, sushi and hear Fushu Daiko perform. The only glitch was that the lines for the drinks and food were so long, we had to give up eating so that we could go hear the drummers instead. They might try... More
