Although as another reviewer said, not all flowers are in bloom in the fall, the grounds were beautiful! There were still plenty of flowers to enjoy. My husband really liked the car museum and we both enjoyed a fun ride on the carousel :-) The giant bugs were interesting to say the least. We stopped at the outdoor cafe and... More

Although fall is not the optimum time to visit, the grounds are still beautiful (but not in full bloom as it is in the spring). The new added attraction was the "Big Bugs" exhibit, with 9' tall ants and 18' tall praying mantis! They were hidden over the acreage and it was like a scavenger hunt! Lots of fun and... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the gardens and it's exhibits. The grounds were in great shape and very clean. It is easy to get around to see everything and the plants were well marked. The automobiles were fantastic. There were some very expensive and old models on display. We had lunch at the cafe which was reasonable and... More

Heritage Museums & Gardens were beautiful. They have the best collection of heritage cars. We were slightly disappointed because their Americana Exhibit was not open due to renovations, but that did not spoil our fun-it's just another excuse to visit the Cape again!

This is one amazing place! Paved pathways wind through lovely gardens with plants, flowers and trees. Something is always in bloom. There is also a car barn full of beautifully maintained antique cars - each with a story. There is a history museum and an art museum. There is always a special exhibit of some kind. This year the exhibit... More

Lovely gardens, plus very interesting exhibits, make this attraction well worth a visit. The gardens provide a most enjoyable walk with views of beautiful flowerbeds, water features...even a picture perfect windmill. The car exhibit was outstanding, containing a very impressive collection of rare and unusual autos from different eras. Really---this is a cool place!!!

We loved the Heritage Museum. It had vast, green grounds that you could walk around on (with a stroller) and at the time, we saw the Big Bugs exhibit, which was nice. The automobile exhibit is really interesting and the cars are beautiful. The cafe in the Gardens isn't so bad and is a good place to grab a snack/drink... More
