The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens reviews
During the summer, the Cummer offers Free Fridays. Not sure if that is the official name, but Fridays are free. Not only was there fantastic art, but there was also live music and food and drinks...

We really enjoyed visiting this museum and gardens. The collection of art is interesting and not so large as to be overwhelming. The restuarant's out door was seating was very pleasant and the food...

What a delightful surprise for a first timer! Museum and botanical garden combo definitely was the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon while visiting Jacksonville for the week!!! The museum art was impressive and unique! Most of the art was captivating and displayed with taste! The grounds were beautifully kept and each gallery room was one surprise after another! Truly enjoyed that aspect of the museum experience! The botanical gardens were my absolute favorite!!! Exquisitely kept and photo perfect! Their luscious gardens were a dream to walk through and offered a magical experience. It truly was a wonderland to discover all the areas. The map provided helped navigate it but it’s a paradise to get lost in it! Definitely a must visit when you’re in the area! Highly recommend it for a solo visit or with family!
We went on a Friday afternoon. The museum is actually free from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Fridays. Lovely place filled with interesting exhibits. I love the variability of the exhibits. From the beautiful gardens, to sculpture, art, they even had live music outside of the Asian Art Exhibit. I love the quiet peace and the mediums were Feast for the eyes. This is great for families, date night, or the individual. Definitely check this out!
