With limited time we debated these gardens or the Flagler museum to the north -- thrilled with this choice. Refreshing gardens, interesting history and a fantastic Art Deco in Japan special exhibit. Closing time chased us out - could have sat/walked and enjoyed for twice as long. P.S. We come from Seattle, with two great Japanese gardens, and the variety... More

The walk around the garden is 7/8 of a mile. The gardens are often beautiful. There are a couple of meditation gardens that are great to just sit in. It all took about 3 hours.

While visiting Delray we decided to take in something other than the beach and Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens were fantastic. We first enjoyed a delicious lunch, California rolls and Salmon were very yummy, then we strolled through the gardens. What a beautiful place! Nice easy walk with many places to stop and take in the beauty!

The grounds are spectacular, and well kept. It is interesting watching and photographing the wildlife everywhere. The museum is just charming with pricing for everyone. I was very disappointed in the expensive café lunch pricing for dinky portions. I really appreciated the history and artifacts shown throughout the museum - quite a learning experience about past Florida existence.

Amazing landscape with Koi ponds and a renowned display of Bonsai trees. A day filled with peace and enlightenment. Don't forget the cafe. Food is divine!

The Morikame is a small museum and beautiful Japanese gardens. It is best to visit on a day where you can spend time outside walking around the lake and enjoying the Japanese view of nature. You should allow at least an hour for the outdoor experience. In addition, there is the interior museum and a nice gift shop. There is... More

Peace and tranquility abound as you stroll in the gardens. We enjoyed a wonderful sushi lunch with great garden views. I am lucky to live in the area and get to bring visitors here yearly! I especially like the bonsai and children's school rooms.

It was our first visit and we followed the map in the brochure which helped us get around using the signs in the garden. I liked the tranquil serenity, and the fresh air among the trees It was interesting to see bamboo groves, bushes with pretty flowers, nice greenery, quiet lakes, stone lanterns, rock gardens, large koi fish and many...
