pretty garden, free visit
Apr 2021
Honestly more 'good' than 'very good' - but it is free, and the sculpture/gardens were lovely to walk through. If you don't time carefully, that's about it though. I missed the current exhibit by a day or two - had not read carefully - and what was on offer when I showed up was some sort of movie - and nothing else - in which I had no interest. So, not a museum per se - but sort of a community art center along with a research library that didn't appear to welcome visitors - quickly shooed out of that. Call me a bumbling tourist. But as said, the gardens were pretty and there were some interesting 'installations' in the pavilion as well (vegetable art for want of a better description)

Gorgeous Verdant Garden!
Mar 2021
Gorgeous and relaxing garden. Several fountains, many areas to sit, relax and take it in. Beautiful sculptures including two Dale Chihuli installations name Fiori in exhibition at the gardens through May 2, 2021.

The gardens are free and the perfect place to enjoy nature.

Lovely garden
Mar 2021
Great place for a quiet walk in the gardens. The Library is closed. I have attended concerts and Opera simulcasts from the Met in their theater but not since the Covid pandemic, I believe they are having limited shows and art exhibits now.

Wonderful way to spend a relaxing hour or more

The free gardens are great. The grounds are beautiful, and there is more than enough seating in the sculpture area. We go here often just to relax and enjoy the outdoors

Beautiful gardens
Jan 2021 • Solo
Visited the gardens on Sunday. The gardens are free. They entire place is very beautiful, and well kept. The Library was closed, and all other facilities were being redone so they were closed. There is plenty of free parking. The gardens are 2 minutes from Worth Ave. So you can drive closer, walk the Ave, window shop and have lunch. Or go back to Clematis Ave for many good choices, with many price option.
A nice way to spend a few hours.

Super Gem

The Society should not be missed if you are in Palm Beach. It sponsors excellent exhibits in their small museum. We have seen the Churchill paintings and the South African bead work as examples. The non-hidden gem is the small botanical and sculpture garden. I think it is a must see.

Magical Gardens
Dec 2020
There are magical gardens, sculptures & a walking tour behind the library. We walked to the right, picked up a walking tour and wandered into the gardens. This non-profits mission is to promote art, literature, music and drama offering a calendar full of diverse concerts, films, exhibits, speakers, workshops & classes. I've tried to join and am on the waiting list.

The Gioconda & Joseph King Library is a grand Mediterranean building with a mural depicting art, literature, music & drama painter by Albert Herter in 1939. The two bronze panthers guard the entrance to the library.

The Botanical Garden is lush and tropical with lots of benches, sculptures, water features & plants to admire. The Moonlight, Chinese, Jungle, Palm & Madonna Gardens were impressive; a perfect location for a wedding or outdoor event.

We walked through beautiful pergolas, past the two Peacock Monuments on our way into the Pannill Pavillion filled with fountains, lush foliage and the four seasons sculptures by Philip Haas. He painted four large fiberglass head sculptures to represent each season, inspired by Mannerist Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

I sat on a bench between life size sculptures of Roosevelt & Churchill in Lawrence Holofcener's The Allies in bronze & wood.

Great!
Jun 2020
We visited the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach Florida last week. We toured the gardens and they were very lovely. This was my first visit to the gardens - who knew they were there? - although I have been to Palm Beach many times.
