There is a wonderful place in Palm Beach Florida that has not only beautiful gardens, but an auditorium, with classes, book reviews, seminars, movies, and much more. Atruly wonderful place to soak up some culture.

I was visiting in Boca Raton and saw a blurb in the Palm Beach post. This is such a gem and so not known. Selfish me ( and I understand why) I wish there was a Bistro just so I could have lunch amidst beauty. The sculpture garden next to the " test" garden is equally breathtaking. I should explain...

They have a really wonderful library with lots of atmosphere. They have cultural activities all winter. Stop by and pick up the brochures highlighting all the activities. The grounds are lovely as well.

We only visited the gardens after a day of walking around Palm Beach. This is a wonderful place, the combination of nature, design and art. Great thought and planning are evident and it was a joy to wander through and spot unusual plants in interesting combinations, perfectly maintained punctuated by water features and inspired sculpture. It was my favorite part... More

There are two things to see: 1.The main building offering different exhibitions. We saw illustrations of children books and it was so sweet. The manager showed us around and gave us a little introduction. 2. The garden. Not very large but very clean and well maintained, also showing various sculptures. We were particularly impressed by the small Chinese garden, so... More

We stumbled across the gardens walking back to Palm Beach from West Palm. The gardens are gorgeous! Free entry and fun to wander through. You can see it all in 30 min. or spend half a day here with a book. Don't miss!

Saw the most wonderful exhibit of circa 1930s Japanese art deco paintings, objects d'art, etc. The artifacts were extremely well-preserved. Well worth the price of admission. Beautiful gallery space. Conveniently loacted right off Royal Palm in Palm Beach. Also, walked through the indescribably magnificent sculpture gardens. Peaceful and tranquil. Open to the public with no admission. There are numerous events... More

The gardens here are just beautiful. We spent over an hour just wandering around looking at all the plants and trees. Several ponds are in the gardens as well as statuary. Visiting this is a great way to wind down a bit and just relax. There are some very unique plants here that I had never seen anywhere. Excellent guidebook... More
