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

They were having a food truck event when I went and giving free admission. Thanks! The gardens are beautiful. Lots of interesting sculptures throughout the garden. A lot of the garden is woodland and very peaceful. There are more formal flower beds near the front gate. Since it was early in the summer, the beds weren't that far along in... More

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.

A lifelong Memphian yet I had never visited the Dixon Gallery and Gardens prior to this past weekend. I have driven by the treelined entrance many times and always said I would like to go, I'm very glad that I finally did! The gardens and grounds around the gallery are incredible, its springtime so everything is in bloom. It was... More

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.
