If you like art & gardens, this is the place for you! Wonderful way to spend the afternoon, strolling in beautifully manicured gardens with spectacular art. In addition to great restaurants, fun beaches, and window shopping on worth ave, these gardens should also be in your to do list. Fun for all ages!

If you think that Palm Beach is all about the shopping and the sun, you are dead wrong: we have art here! A not-to-miss attraction is the Norton Museum. A first-rate museum with a stunning sculpture garden outdoors. When you come to the Museum, be sure to head over to the gardens. And stay there awhile, weather permitting. Strikingly beautiful!...

I'm shocked that this place doesn't have top reviews from everyone - we had a great time. This garden is $10 per person and our tour guide was a German woman (I forgot her name) but she gave us a lot of information and an overview and she answered our questions and showed us some old pictures of the house....

It might be unfair to rate this since we didn't go in, but it looked so unimpressive from the street that we chose not to pay the $10pp entry fee

This garden is well maintained and has the most interesting sculptures as well as great views of the intra coastal waterway. The sculptures are made from different materials and come in different sizes and colors. Don't forget to go through her studio which will give you an idea how these sculptures are made. There are also changing art exhibits in... More

But I experienced the gardens at their Christmas best, complete with children caroling, a light and water show with fantastic music and trees ... dozens of Christmas trees decorated in themes by the Garden's patron. It was fabulous.

I must admit that having seen the advertising I was expecting more. It is located on a residential street and is not much bigger than the other houses in that location. The gardens are only small, and filled mostly with different varieties of Palms. The sculptures are large, most are built from brick and look fairly similar. An hour is... More

Located just of the intracoastal waterway, this sculpture garden is an ideal location for a wandering walk to take in some beauty. Lovely gardens and huge (!!) sculptures in cement, bricks, and stone. There is a small entry fee, well worth the visit, since this garden is totally self supported. Give it a try. Amble amid some beauty.

We normally look for sculpture gardens when we travel, unfortunately we are often disappointed. We were not disappointed with the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden. We loved it!!! If you like Storm King or Grounds for Sculpture you will enjoy this miniature sized but equally impressive art oasis.
