This is a wonderful place to spend a leisurely afternoon. I recommend making a day of it. The gardens are beautiful. You can spend hours just viewing the lovely landscape and wildlife. Picnic outside or just hang out. Some people even nap, read, or play frisbee. This was the home of RJ Reynolds, the tobacco company founder and a throw back to an era of the great industrial barons who built this country. The 1000 acre estate built in 1917, is a marvel in itself but the American Art Collection is extremely impressive. Reynolda House is also the setting for special events and lectures throughout the year. Adjacent to Renolda House is Reynolda Village, an original part of the estate, which is now the location for many shops and eateries, including the featured restaurant, The Village Tavern (reservations recommended). Reynolda Village and estate are adjacent to Wake Forest University. I would NOT recommend the Art Museum to small children. However the grounds and Village are suitable to all ages.
