We came to the Dixon to see the collection of Impressionist paintings. Unfortunately with the two modern exhibits taking up the gallery space, they were out on loan for the next few months....The two exhibits were not really our thing. The coffee shop was nice, and there still were some interesting pieces to look at. Because of our level of membership at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, we did not pay admission at this reciprocal museum, which softened the blow a bit. I am sure we would have enjoyed our visit more had the permanent collection been there. As we were there later in the afternoon, we did not have time to go to the gardens. Signage to parking and entry could have been better.

Since we were there in the late fall we couldn't get the full benefit of the grounds, which although nicely manicured had turned brown due to the weather. The galleries, one of which was the main floor of the former Dixon residence were nice and had excellent exhibits. We got to see the Friedel Dzubas exhibit which is there through January 5th, They offer senior and AAA discounts.

I've been to Memphis several times, but this past weekend I visited the Dixon for the very first time. And I really enjoyed the experience! The gardens aren't huge, but they're very nice, and there are lots of tables to sit and enjoy the gardens. But the gallery was lovely. Right now, they have two exhibits on abstract expressionism: "Abstract Expressionism: A Social Revolution, Selections from the Haskell Collection" and "Friedel Dzubas: The Ira A. Lipman Family Collection" (both through January 5, 2020). I haven't had many opportunities to see such modern exhibits at museums, and I really enjoyed both exhibits. In addition to those temporary exhibits, the gallery has a permanent collection area, a small area that displays art by local artists, and a small cafe and shop. I recommend going when there is an exhibit you're interested in (because the permanent collection is very small), but I thought the $7 admission for adults was very fair and our visit very enjoyable overall. I'd certainly go back when I'm next in Memphis to see their next temporary exhibits! Lovely place to visit in Memphis!

Dixon Gallary is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. it is very accessible. you'll have to walk a little but the tour outside and inside are both worth a small amount of effort. The grounds are beautiful and the art work and collectibles inside are also very pretty and interesting. It's a wonderful event to enjoy, peaceful and relaxing.

The gardens alone are worth the visit. But the art puts this way over the top. I went for the permanent collection, which boasts some of the finest impressionist and post-impressionist holdings outside of Europe. It did not disappoint. I found myself face to face with over 30 exquisite works by Monet, Cezanne, Renoir, Degas, Pisarro, Seurat and many others. These are marvelously displayed in a former private home, placed on the walls of beautifully furnished rooms with NO velvet ropes, screaming kids, or glass or plexi protections. Quality lighting and presentation add to an experience that I enjoyed most of the time with Nobody else in the room!!! If thats not enough, the price of entry? free! ( sat am). I have lived in NYC and Paris and must tell you-if you are an art lover , this Memphis jewel is a must see!
