I love coming here during the "food truck fridays". To have lunch when you're surrounded by beautiful art and gardens is surreal.

We visited this for my high school daughter's art class. It is somewhat small, doesn't take a lot of time, but what they have is very impressive. We went in Jan so the gardens were not in bloom, but even seeing the 'non-blooming' garden area makes us want to go back. It looks like it would be very nice. We... More

The Dixon has a very nice stable collection and they also have featured collections which change quarterly. They have a very nice setting and if the weather is good wandering around the gardens is very special. Their gift shop is small, but very nice. This is a nice and very pleasant respite.

The changing exhibits at the Dixon sometimes grab me and sometimes don't. They have had some outstanding exhibits, so check their website. The permanent impressionist art collection is very nice, just don't compare it to big city museums with huge budgets. In recent years Dixon has begun to include the grounds in some exhibits, either to enhance the experience of... More

This was a nice place to spend a couple of hours on a sunny day. There are wonderful gardens and a large number of different plants and flowers. It is very peaceful and serene to be able to wonder around such beautiful landscapes.

Went there during the Kanenko (sic?) exhibit, and was really happy I did. Besides the sculptures that were great, the grounds were really cool. Loved the succulent greenhouse a lot. Would be a nice wedding venue too.

You do not have to be an artsy person to appreciate this experience. Over a large expanse of land, there are beautiful plants and landscaping intermixed with interesting sculptures. This place is very large. Interesting and quaint pathways. Soothing. My 2.5 year old grandchild loved running around. I'm not an artsy guy and totally enjoyed the experience. My family made... More

We visited a couple days before the gallery reopened. The grounds,shrubs, plants and sculptures were enjoyable to observe. I didn't really ''get'' the Japanese sculptures, but they were interesting none the less. My favorites were the walls of plants. I may try to grow one myself next year. The little cafe tables&chairs abundant, was a nice touch.A nice place to... More

Whether it's the Memphis Ballet performing on the Dixon Gallery lawn or the Memphis symphony, I love that they are intentional about family friendly cultural experiences
