The gardens at the Morikami Museum captivate the atmosphere of different eras and concepts. Each of the gardens evoke different feelings - serenity, balance, exploration, beauty, peace. The visitor could be anywhere in the world when walking from garden to gardens. The Morikami Museum and Gardens also are a wonderful way to experience a small bit of Eastern culture

I have been several times and always enjoy it. The gardens are beautifully maintained and I always enjoy seeing what is on offer in the gift shop. The view from the restaurant is great and the staff are friendly. I recommend at least spending a couple of hours there.

If you are looking for a quite place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place. A number of lovely gardens are joined as you walk the path through this park. There is a gift shop as well as a good restaurant.

This park is the closest park in south Florida which reproduces a Japanese garden with numerous examples touching on the culture of Japan. The views are spectacular and the "Lantern Festival" is the most popular event which has to be scheduled long in advance but worth the wait. In addition one can visit any season and see changes in the... More

Museum and gardens were a beautiful place to spend a Saturday afternoon. The weather was nice so we were able to walk the grounds. We enjoyed our afternoon.

I was there a while ago, and I was not impressed. I found the vegetation was poorly planned and I found myself mapping out what I would have done with the species they were featuring to make the gardens more interesting and abundant to the eye. I am a great Gertrude Jekyll fan. I did adore the bamboo forest -... More

As a first time visitor to South Florida, I wasn't sure what to expect, attraction-wise. My in-laws recommended the Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens. Wow. As far as I'm concerned, this is a must see experience. This is one of those attractions that is beautiful and educational at the same time. The museum is excellent, giving you a great presentation... More

This is a great place to take a nice nature walk I learned some of the history of South Florida. You can learn about the Japanese culture that settled in Boca Raton area.
