“Worth the trip for a small museum!”

Marietta Museum-Art & Whimsy
Ranked #15 of 144 things to do in Sarasota
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I love Art Museums but sometimes find them a bit "stuffy" and typical. At this museum I loved the creativity and ability to make me smile. This attraction ranks as my favorite in Sarasota. It is small and only takes half hour to an hour to go thru, but worth the stop. Make sure you check out the bathrooms too!

we passed by on our way to the beach+waiting for our hotel to open.
On a Whim we stopped here...and You Should Too! for a short infusion of cheerful art and happiness. The kiddo and I took pics in the gardens and wondered the short paths...Inside the guide was so friendly and engaging. I'm from the South and this Lady had it all; she showed my son the ceiling light show (it responds to sound) He yelled out our pets' names, clapped his hands and generally squealed ...ONLY AFTER...She said, "It's A-Ok to LAUGH!" she spoke regarding the art, the whimsy and on-going projects. Wow, just wow. oh, I lingered in the ladies' room (there's art everywhere) only to find my son engaged in a game with the guide; he'd been left in front of the museum flatscreen documentary show....she found he preferred to play. This is a happy place full of color and light and kindness.
I'm including this for no reason in particular: the parkinglot was nearly empty early afternoon today. The price is Free.

Very unique experience. The art is not the usual fare and very creative and colorful. Our visit was very enjoyable and inspiring. The have a beautifully landscape patio and garden area that is great for parties. Huge parking lot. They have done alot for the neighborhood in the way of development. Looking forward to going back.
