This is such a treasure of Memphis. If you're seeking a quiet retreat, whether it's inside or out, this is a lovely destination. I think my favorite time to visit is in the spring when everything is blooming. The tulips can be breathtaking. The house has different galleries. They have travelling exhibits that come in, and some permanent exhibits. I... More

The gardens were hands down the most beautiful I've seen in this lifetime. The grounds are wonderfully kept- admission is very fair. Each season brings a different blend of colors and smells. Absolutely a must see if botanics are your thing.

We were looking for something to do on a recent rainy afternoon and this place came highly recommended. The grounds are beautiful and I can imagine them being extraordinary in the warmer months when all of the flowers are in full bloom. The amaryllis exhibit was lovely and is definitely worth a look. The indoor programming was well done too... More

Dixon museum impressed me by the uniqueness of the collections. December presented us with the largest Rodin collection we ever expected to see in a single location. The museum nicely arranged the 51 statues across several rooms. A small version of 'the thinker ' and the enormous 'the three shades' among ohers can be appreciated until jan 11. Also, we... More

This is one place I was always proud to show off to visitors when I lived in Memphis. Mostly impressionist paintings inside and glorious grounds and gardens outside.

This is an old family estate house that has had an addition in order to be able to exhibit art objects and hold various functions. The house itself is not massive and the addition flows perfectly to parts of the house's first floor with its original furniture and decoration, part of an era of fine living as you can see... More

This museum with a full range of the plastic arts representing many eras is set in an old Memphis mansion surrounded by gardens. Especially beautiful in early spring, but attractive in every season. Special exhibits year round, and a surprisingly good small collection of old masters as well as modern artists.

This is a gem of an art museum. The gardens add to the overall beauty, as does the home that the museum is housed in. If you love art, spend a couple hours at the Dixon!
