Gardens were nice. The gallery is under renovations until fall of 2015. While it's being remodeled, the garden is "pay-what-you-want". Plan to return to see the gallery.

The gardens and grounds are gorgeous no matter what time of year. Go to an outside special event if you can. The museum has a nice permanent collection and their changing exhibits are include internationally important and regional art.

Wander through the galleries and enjoy the artwork. Especially look at the pottery table settings. Then go through the gardens and relax among the tulips (that's what was in bloom when we were there). Relax.

Clearly much thought has gone into staggering the plantings to take advantage of the blooms. Tulips about done, azaleas just starting. Beautiful! The gift store having a sale, will "go dark" soon for remodeling so selling inventory rather than storing. Very nice exhibit and fun brown bag lunch/lecture. (Bring your own lunch.)

We visited on an early April Tuesday, where they offered free admission. Their planting of 150,000 tulips was brilliant and so colorful. After strolling the gardens for an hour or so, we visited the art gallery. Inside are several works by the Impressionist, including Monet, Deals, Gaugan, and Toulouse-Latrec that simply made my day.

My fiance and I visited Dixon for the Rodin gallery, which was very nice. Even though it was fall, the gardens were lovely and we had a blast walking around! I can't wait to go back in the spring.

The gardens are beautiful and will probably be in full bloom soon. The scavenger hunt for the kids kept them busy and engaged.nicely done!

The Dixon is a fabulous gallery with works that change out every time I'm there. This trip things were AMAZING! Monet and Rodin to mention a couple! The Gardens are always a treat to enjoy. I never go to Memphis that I don't visit the Dixon. LOVE this place!

Going there after several cold spells the expectation for the Gardens was not very high. It was a nice place to walk around, but much of the greenery was, well, brown. They do have a nice heated building for the orchids, they were beautiful. The Gallery is nice. I would say average for a city of that size. They had... More
