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...More

We thoroughly enjoyed this garden! It’s smaller for those of us who have a limited number of steps. Many inspiring garden ideas and photo opportunities. Love this place! The gallery is exceptional as well.

We visited on a Food Truck Friday (which were held every Friday from 11:30am to 1:30pm, April through June). Admission to the gardens is free during Food Truck Fridays. So, we started with the gardens, before going to the gallery for a meditation class. Afterwards,...More

We visited the Dixon to see the special Paxton exhibit. However, while traveling with a toddler our time (at least my time as the mom) was very limited. One of the security guards suggested we (my 20 month son and I) check out the new...More

One thing I love about the Dixon is the mix of beautiful (mostly 19th century European) art inside & the gorgeous small but very diverse set of very well-kept gardens outside this old estate. Outdoor sculpture garden meets art gallery. They have a nice cafe...More

Surprised by free admission(every Saturday morning) we walked through the familiar home filled with stunning artwork. Then a trip around the grounds where the azaleas were glorious finished our visit and a wonderful break from the rush of the city.

My wife and I visited Dixon Gallery & Gardens on April 6 and the gardens were absolutely beautiful! Tulips were truly amazing! We visited on Saturday when admission is free from 10:00am until noon. The museum (gallery) was also very nice. Would definitely recommend.

It’s tulip time! The azaleas are up next. Lots of variety and color. Lovely grounds with nice selection of species and big trees. The art collection has mostly French artists with a couple of lovely Monets. Very nice afternoon visit. Recommend for everyone!

I don't think so. When we were there, I asked if the grounds stayed open after the museum closes at 5; I was told no. Might be worth a call to them though
