Experience Cheekwood, the 55-acre estate built by the Maxwell House Coffee fortune in Nashville, Tennessee, and one of the finest examples of an American Country Place Era Estate in the United States. The Botanical Garden is a spectacular showcase...more
The grounds are beautiful. The plus for us was getting to see the inflatable white rabbit exhibit that we'd seen at our Memphis museum. Also, the mansion is beautiful and worth the visit. Tickets are a bit pricey.
Our church grop spent the afternoon at Cheekwood. The gardens were lovely, and they were featuring their new art exhibit. They are in the process of restoring some of the mansions rooms to the period . The entrance to the mansion was a little too...More

The tickets are normally for the day, however, sometimes they do have events which have tickets for specific times of the day or night. Its best to check the event calendar or call ahead to find out about the day you plan to visit. The Christmas lights were an example of an event where the day tickets had time restrictions on them.
