Beautiful grounds, well maintained. Very relaxing and meditative experience. Large variety of plant life & exhibits interesting. Had lunch at the restaurant and was excellent and very reasonable. If you go during summer I would recommend going early when they open.

informative, beautiful we enjoyed being there very much but I would not recommend for young kids. It was fascinating to watch the koi and to see how large they are. The bonsai were incredible !

Rare flowers which are beautiful and smell good! Lots of colors, and a taste of a different culture! Went with my mom, and have been begging my boy friend to come with me!

What a lovely place to spend hours wandering around. It is also a great lesson in Japanese history in Southern Florida. The biggest surprise was the restaurant. Great view, the food is really good! I had a lovely Bento box lunch that satisfied my vegan needs. A great way to spend a peaceful day.

Japanese gardens ... OK it's another one ... but then that's not a bad thing. I feel I have seen better. But the serenity of a Japanese garden is always worth the stroll... Somehow they just sooth the soul and relax you.

I recommend allowing at least three hours here. The stroll around the lake through six Japanese garden styles will take an hour (IF YOU REALLY RUSH)... 1.5 hours should be the minimum, as it is nearly 1 mile of walking and there are tons of photo ops. DO DO THE TEA CEREMONY ... it is an extra $5, but well... More

I read the one star reviews of the Morikami and I would urge anyone truly interested in Japanese design and culture to dismiss them completely. The gardens have been expertly designed to reflect the evolution of Japanese gardens through the centuries, to provide a setting that looks, sounds, smells, and feels like Japan, and that evokes a remarkable sense of...

We were delighted by this place! admission price is reasonable, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It was such a peaceful stroll through the gardens, tons of things to see and learn. We really liked the original museum house with the examples of the life of a modern Japanese family. We went around the gardens twice since it was... More

Visited in June 2015. Hard to do it justice in writing! If you like Japanese culture, food, or just really like gardens and the outdoors, then this place is a must. Truly wonderful in every regard. The Cornell Cafe on site is great too, menu is limited but fair priced and tasty! Yearly memberships are a great deal.
