This is a place unlike any other. A sculpture garden, with new exhibits as artists create. The main sculptures are far more than interesting. Odd shaped human figures, monoliths, and while I visited, there was a bug exhibit, with sculpted bugs as big as cars and trucks. Check the photos out. IT is a truly unique place, and a MUST... More

If you are into nature or sculptures this gem of a place is the way to go! Enjoyed learning of Ann Norton, seeing her beautiful home, amazing gardens, her studio and ohhhh those amazing sculptures. So glad we gave it a try.

I love these gardens and house. I was privileged years ago to design a Red Cross House here in the main house. The studio is outstanding and plan to leave lots of time to wander throughout the gardens and appreciate the views on the intercostal waterway.

This is a nice place but you struggle to spend more than an hour there. I liked the statues but how historic is anything that's decades old rather than centuries old? I guess that's a US thing?

Having lived in the area for 23+ years, I thought it was time to visit this interesting home, garden, and artist's studio, located along the Intracoastal Waterway in the El Cid neighborhood. And, my sister was visiting so this was my birthday present to her! We were both very impressed with the many species of palm trees and the awesome,... More

This is a lovely museum where you get to roam the grounds and see the sculpture. Plus, it's right by El Cid, so lovely homes all around the area if you're done with the gardens but want to keep walking around.

Go when the Christmas Tree show is current, the trees they decorate are fantastic. The garden is something that can be done in about 30 minutes and is nice to see how there is a little bit of West Palm that is not destroyed or filled with concrete. Now value wise I would give this place a 3.5 to 4... More

The art work is out of this world every 3 months the art work changes... Staff is very helpful and friendly 😊😊... Your can park right in front of the house or at the school behind the museum.. Self tour is all you need

But a few streets down from the Norton Museum of Art is the spacious Ann Norton Sculpture Garden and Museum.Earlier this month a friend and I drove to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. Before entering the Gardens there is a small museum that houses many of Ann Norton's works. But we were very fortunate to see a traveling exhibit of... More

We have been to the gardens multiple times and always enjoy our time there. The sculptures are so varying in textures, dimensions and use, but all are wonderful! We initially went as it was something "different" to do in West Palm, but go back because it has a calmly, serene atmosphere to it. If you are around in Dec, you... More
