We liked this house and garden very much. Apart from Ann Norton's impressive sculptures there is usually an interesting exhibition of another artist. We have already been twice and hope to return next time we are in West Palm Beach.

The museum is an old house in the neighborhood. Surprisingly, the gardens are big enough to spend and hour plus there. We were fortunate to see not only Ann's sculptures, but a polish artist works that were balancing in the air! Would visit again depending on the visiting artists works.

The grounds are impressive because of the 300 species of palms. 'One of the largest publicly held collections.', however none are identified on the map provided. The grounds are impressive because they are dotted with high wire sculptures, which again are not marked on the map provided. The artist's studio is interesting... but there is a major leak in the...

It is located in the nice old residential area of El Cid, and from the street you could never guess how far back the property goes--1.7 acres in all. The artist worked an lived here during the 40's and onward. Her... More

My honey and I stopped in to enjoy the Annual Festival Of Trees and it was such a lovely experience. The sculpture gardens are alwyas enjoyable, especially during the holidays. The trees this year were decorated according to various states, with about 25 states being represented. Plus, they have a laser light show, perfectly choreographed with music and this year,... More

It is at the end of the street that abuts the intercoastal waterway - The entrance is through what was the home of sculptor Ann Norton. A guide gives you some history of Ann and her sculptures then you are off on your own to explore. It... More

We never miss the themed Christmas Tree Exhibit every December. The garden is lovely and offers an art inspired respite.

Very modern in feeling for the most part with a Japanese area. Very worthwhile. Here is a lovely tea house and they sometimes have programs held with a lovely tea service. I would go back.

My husband and I visited this site last week. We enjoyed the historical information that was provided about the house and artist. The gardens and sculptures are beautiful. It's inexpensive and a great find.

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!
