We visited in mid-April and were greeted by thousands of color coordinated tulips. What a nice way to start! The art museum is quite nice, though small scale, and the history of the Cheek famly (founders of Maxwell House coffee) was interesting and unexpected. The modern art collection is quite nice, rather more good humored than a lot of modern art collections, including adjacent portraits of Jamie Wyeth by Andy Warhol and of Andy Warhol by Jamie Wyeth. We got to the second floor to discover a chamber music concert in progress. Very fine playing, an additonal treat. We only explored a fraction of the gardens, but what we saw was well maintained, cool, and very attractive. By the way, the route to Cheekwood takes you through a spectacular neighborhood of large, elegant houses--worth looking at!
