Nice gardens

The museum was close but the garden is beautiful. Saturdays 10 to noon is free so is a good option. A lot of kids there.

Very relaxing place to go. Beutiful areas and places to sit and read a good book (or tablet). Need to check the paintings, the special shows or excibits and the movies/lectures when in town.

My boys and I visited this gallery on 8/15/15 for the splash time at the Dixon. I am very saddened to have watched my boys be profiled by the director of education for an hour and a half that we were there and my boys played in the sprinklers. I think this was a great idea to allow the children... More

If you are into horticulture, this may be one of the highlights of your visit. The Dixon has done an outstanding job with a variety of plants in different settings. Small and intimate compared to the Botanic Garden (close by), and a really unique experience.

One of the fine small museums in our country, representing largely a personal collection with other exhibits. Nice gardens with a vigorous native gardening section.

Not only do they have an excellent permanent exhibit to view, they also host other exhibitions as well. Located on an old estate property, there are also extensive gardens to walk through. Be sure to keep track of their calendar to enjoy their offerings to the fullest.

I loved this place!! I will definitely go again. So many pretty things to look at! It was so hot and humid but if you go early enough it's not too bad and they have a mist area you can cool off at.

I love the paintings, the special shows, the gardens, the movies, the lectures -- there's nothing I don't love! This is a great museum.

Very pleasant stroll with pretty park. A semi annual flower show uses a special exhibit of art and is worth visiting. This is in April in even years.

It was a really nice moment to learn about the art world in Memphis. My boyfriend and I arrived about 30 minutes before closing. We saw the artist's artworks that I had hoped to view in that time. Plus! They were giving out books for free of famous art from different eras and styles. Tuesday are pay what you will.... More
