This is a great find for those interested in a pleasant and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Located on Riverside Ave., this museum is not big - but it is well done, has a variety of art objects - from jewelry and statues dating 2500 years ago, to a very nice collection of Dutch and Flemish artists, to 3-400...

Small art gallery with wonderful exhibits both permanent and special feature. The sculpture on the grounds and in the gardens are fascinating. There is a ancient live oak on the property that is worth the trip alone. Nice cafe and gift shop. One of the best child's art and play area I've seen in any museum.

The Cummer Museum a beautiful place anytime of the year. The outside gardens is a good setting for family or nature photos. The art inside is interesting with both youth and community influences. Tuesday afternoons are free- my favorite time to visit!

A wonderful place to spend a day if you enjoy art museums or watching the city roll by. The gardens are a calming and joyous walk. The museum sits along the St. John's River.

Definitely worth visiting to see the eclectic collection of art and the riverside gardens. There is an onsite cafe with both indoor and outside patio dining. There is a free self parking lot across the street from the entrance.

One of the cultural gems of Jacksonville, I go every 2 or 3 months and my wife goes more often. I go for the art exhibits. The Archipenko sculpture exhibit is a definite must see. One of their special exhibits, it like so many other special exhibits rivals those we had seen in NYC when we lived there. In addition... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon here viewing varied and interesting art displays. A stroll through the gardens was delightful complete with the St Johns River banked against the walkway.
