If a relaxing stroll, photographic opportunities, and view famous art sounds like a good time for you-Look no farther. We have been visiting here off and on for years. It is a good, quiet refuge away from the business of town.

Was disappointed that some of their better known artist were put up for the special exhibits they had going at the time. However the special exhibits were well worth seeing. Well done

Drove out of our way to sèe this gallery, as we like impressionist painting.Bought our tickets and then found out most of it was being updated, so only the cafe, shop, a photo exhibition and 2 small rooms of paintings were on show.

The gardens and gallery are both small compared to others but together they make a very nice combo. The grounds are well kept. The art is housed in an historic home which also adds to the attraction.

Not too much in bloom this time of year but the art sculptures and Gallery are very nice. A bit out of town but easy to find. This is near Gibson's Donuts so we stopped there for donuts after YUM

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
