The Gardens, walking path and lake is beautiful, serene and interesting. Reserve a minimum of a couple hours to soak everything in. I went on a day when the exhibit was changing over but that would only add to the experience if it were open. Highly recommend.

Need an escape from Florida to Japan with no flight cost? This is it! The Japanese garden at this museum is stunning and a true oasis. Take your time, don't rush through. Enjoy your time and space from the mobile phone. The restaurant at the museum is good as well; a nice mix of traditional and modern Japanese food selections.... More

We decided to take a trip here one afternoon while the weather wasn't the best for sometbjbg to do and entertain our 21 month old son. When we arrived we were the only car there! Great facility, well signed with information, lovely walkways. We managed to see 3 different species of turtles and LOTS of birds. Unfortunately we didn't see... More

What a beautiful park. Well maintained, plenty of places to sit and thoroughly enjoy the beauty of the landscaping. If you are into nature or just have an appreciation for exquisite surroundings, definitely a place you need to visit.

Love this place and more than worth the price of admission! There is a beautiful walk with many education pieces, art, and one of the largest bonsai collections in the USA. The restaurant is a nice break for Japanese food and service is always kind. The best is to become a member and make regular trips to enjoy the tranquility... More

Aging a bit but very nice. Art museum inside had some mildly interesting displays, though they rotate. Gardens pretty but not the best I have seem. Small children's cultural museum inside gardens, was cute but aging. Good for a romatic lunch and afternoon, but was too hot and humid to enjoy fully. Not much was indoors.

This is a wonderful place to spend a day. We arrived just before lunch and obtained an excellent table on the edge of the deck of the restaurant. The food was very good and put us in proper spirits to tour the gardens. Photographs cannot do it justice. It is a stunning example of Japanese gardens and the entire aesthetic... More

Beautifully landscaped Japanese gardens in the middle of Boca. The plantings and foliage are so different from the palm trees and other tropical plants in the surrounding neighborhoods that it's almost hard to believe you're still in South Florida when you walk the gardens. The walking trail is about 1.5 miles, and takes about an hour depending on your pace.... More

What a beautiful place! Bring your walking shoes as its larger than it appears. The restaurant is great and reasonably priced. The food is wonderful. The museum is always changing so it never gets old. The gift shop has great items of interest to any age.

Morikami does a great job at keeping their grounds in pristine condition. The different trees, plants and gardens are so peaceful to look at - many great photo ops!
