Owner description: 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 of color and horticultural diversity with eleven specialty display gardens and stunning natural landscape. The Museum of Art has collections of Painting, Sculpture and Decorative Arts. Visitors can enjoy year-round family-friendly activities with four distinct festivals held during the year. From Cheekwood in Bloom with more than 50,000 tulips in the Spring, to a children’s wonderland of Christmas trees, Trains, Santa, live reindeer, and more during Holiday at Cheekwood, Cheekwood celebrates the seasons in style with something for everyone!

My wife and I are happy to be members at Cheekwood. The gardens are beautiful, and at least one visit each season is a must. The collection in the art museum is limited, but it's worth seeing while visiting.

We wanted to see and experience the Munro exhibit at night, so we arrived at 4:30p.m. We did a quick tour through all the gardens and the mansin itself.....rested at the Frist Learning Center where there was a continuous video about Bruce Munro, the artist and the process of setting up his installations at Cheekwood. We then checked out the gift shop and lastly retraced our steps to see the creative light installations in the various gardens. This overall plan worked well. We were there for 3 hours! The Mansion itself and its exhibits of art and chinaware were as special as the gardens!

Expansive, beautiful and varied gardens, many styles, well presented, great for a stroll on a nice day. Gardening staff was very engaging, happy to answer questions and tell us about some of what they were working on.
Walk in the woods with multiple large sculpture installations quite interesting. Art exhibit in the mansion was innovative and interesting. Unfortunately were not able to come back in the evening for the Munro lights exhibit.
