One of the most beautiful gardens in the world put together by man. Filled with a very diverse array of plants and trees and walkways. One is never crowded on the walkways due to their configuration. The vegetation and waterways will delight and amaze. The Bonsai items are a real treat. You will want to spend time in the small... More

The grounds are beautiful. Seasons change the blossoming plants. The indoor displays are museum quality and very enlightening. Even the little cafe serves delightful meals.

The extensive Japanese gardens and picnic area are fantastic. The museum is well worth the small price of admission. A do-not-miss attraction in Palm Beach County.

The Morikami Gardens are a wonderful place to visit for an unhurried aafternoon of leisurely walking. The gardens review the development of Japanese gardens from the 16th century. Of course, some of them are more appealing to a person than others. In fact, of our group of four, two of us liked the walled Zen garden the most and two... More

My husband and I had driven past this museum/gardens many many times and had never gone in. We had even considered holding our wedding and reception there 6 years ago. So on our anniversary weekend out we decided to finally go. Nice place- very big. Lots of little places with benches to sit along the pathway and a good portion... More

We have been coming to this Japanese Garden for many years and as time has gone on, we feel that it has not maintained its high profile. There seem to be less flowering plants than in former years, but considering how unique Japanese gardens are in this part of the world, it still is worth touring. At times it can... More

We were impressed by the size of the park. It contains many aspects of what I expect a Japanese garden is. In these gardens plants get formed following the gardeners will. We know that from Bonsai (which is also there). As we visited early in the year there were not many flowers in the park. We anyway enjoyed it very... More

Maybe it was the time of the year, but while the grounds were very peaceful, I was not impressed by the beauty. I have seen other Japanese gardens and remember them as being much more beautiful. At $15 a person, it seemed expensive for what you got.

Over the past few years I have spent a considerable amount of time traveling throughout Japan and I can honestly say that during the 4+ hours I spent here at Morikami I felt like I was transported back to Japan. From the Zen rock garden to the large expanse of the glasslike lake/pond to the waterfalls - every aspect of... More

Plan on spending the day at Morikami. And do yourself a favor and read up on it's history if you have time it will help you enjoy your visit if you are a history buff. At the bare minimum, bring your camera and good walking shoes. There are so many great photo moments here they are to long to list.... More
