Morikami museum is an amazing place, filled with all sorts of aspects of Japanese culture. I have been many times, and will go many more! It's great solo, for families, for dates and educational events. They have many different areas to explore. There are sections spanning all forms of Japanese culture from art, clothing and tools as well as metal... More

This gives the visitor a chance to see Japanese culture here in Florida. It is enjoyable and very peaceful walking along the path which encircles a pond. There are Zen gardens and bonsai along the way. The most interesting exhibit was the indoor exhibits of the bullet train, kitchen, bathroom, and classroom. This allows you to enjoy a quiet walk...

I have been wanting to go here for years! I finally had the chance to and I absolutely loved it! The only thing that I did not love was the fact that the lady would not let my fiancé get the student discount because he forgot to bring his school ID with him even though I had mine and showed...

I won't get detailed on this as the other reviews have covered it pretty well for the average, fairly cultured visitor. I just wanted to add that I spend years in the Western Pacific, and probably a total of a year in Japan in different cities. Morikami gives you a little trip to Japan without leaving home. Hard to describe... More

This was not really a true vacation but any time we can go someplace without the kids, it feels like one. Our family has a condo in Delray Beach and we took a New Year holiday getaway, there.. One of our favorite places to go has been the Morikami Museum & japanese gardens. It's truly beautiful and quite tranquil. On... More

We were very pleased with our visit to this garden and museum. We visited here after a morning's visit to the wetlands on a very hot day. Being warm from our morning's walk in the wetlands, we first visited the museum and shop which were air conditioned. There was a display of woodblock prints based on 11th century stories about...

The name does not describe what one experiences with a visit to the Morikami Museum & Japanese gardens. It is so much more than a museum and gardens. It is a beautiful park where one can stroll, meditate and enjoy a wonderful lunch in their cafetaria. There is also a lovely gift shop. Classes are held on flower arranging, and... More

The gardens are wonderful. As you walk along paths you can hear the bamboos play music as the wind gently blows through them. You can learn about Japanese history and culture and even have lunch at the main house.If you need tranquility this is the place for you.
