We enjoyed a short stroll even though it was a bit cool and nothing in bloom. It was quiet and peaceful here and made us relax. We saw one small turtle and several goldfish in the pond. This stop helped to restore our energy.

Be very careful if you try to book the Hammond for a wedding. Although a beautiful property, the contract to rent the premises is not something I would recommend anyone sign (and as an attorney, I have experience in these areas). First of all, they require the person signing the contract (the wedding couple) to perso...nally monitor alcohol consumption of... More

The azealeas are in bloom as are the Japanese Irises around the pond. It certainly birghtend the rainy day. Revolving exhibits are worth the visit. The grounds are beautiful to walk around and the ZEN garden is a peaceful place to sit and think. Tucked away at the end of a neighborhood road this is truly a treasure. Schools not... More

My daughter had her wedding reception at this museum. the gardens are well maintained, small and make a lovely setting for photos. The museum itself was where the tables were set up and it is large and roomy. the caterer was wonderful. the artwork changes and whatever is on the walls becomes the backdrop for the wedding reception. You can... More
