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.

Going to the Morikami is like going to Kyoto. A gem in the heart of Delray Beach, Florida - America's most wonderful Florida town. A not to be missed place. Anyone who y loves gardens and may be lucky enough to come during a special event will be delighted.

Morikami is a series of gardens constructed to recreate the look and feel of formal Japanese gardens. It is a lovely, flat walk of about 1 ½ miles in a peaceful and serene environment. This is a nice break from the usual activity of Delray Beach and Boca Raton. About two-thirds of the way through the gardens, one comes upon... More

I was in awe of the beauty of the gardens and grounds. One of Florida's best kept secrets. I should have visited years ago. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Enjoyed the restaurant and the very nice Japanese ladies that worked there. Great museum shop too. Wonderful place to calm your nerves in South Florida

Magnificent bonsais. Hidden trails around Japanese botanical plantings. Learn the cultural history of a Japanese community in Florida in the early 20th cent. Relax, as you wander past rock gardens, waterfalls, and the quiet beauty of nature.

I'm lucky I get to tag along as a member's +1 when I visit Boca. I LOVE going here. It's so serene & beautiful. It can be a bit of a walk if you do the entire loop around the lake for anyone who needs assistance, but it's relatively flat. If you go on a super bright, not-a-cloud-in-the-sky, not a... More
