Tuesday evening and the first Sunday of the Month the entrance to the museum is free. They have some very nice pieces and lovely temporary installments. I visit the museum every 2 months or so.

We enjoyed our visit to the Cummer Museum, but we were disappointed to the the extent of damage to the gardens from Hurricane Irma. The art exhibitions were excellent. Definitely worth a visit!

I’m not sure. They have a reciprocal entrance agreement with the Chicago Botanic Garden. If you are a member of your local Botanic garden, you might get in for free.
