The Dixon Gallery and Gardens is an art museum within 17 acres of gardens, established in 1976, and located at 4339 Park Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee, United States.

The museum focuses on French and American impressionism and features works by Monet, Degas, and Renoir, Pierre Bonnard, Mary Cassatt, Marc Chagall, Honoré Daumier, Henri Fantin-Latour, Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Berthe Morisot, Edvard Munch, Auguste Rodin, and Alfred Sisley, as well as an extensive collection of works by French Impressionist artist Jean-Louis Forain. The museum also houses the Stout Collection of 18th-century German porcelain. With nearly 600 pieces of tableware and figures, it is one of the finest such collections in the United States.

The museum sits within four principal outdoor sculpture gardens with Greco-Roman sculpture. Its site was acquired by the Dixons in 1939, and landscaped in the English Garden style with open vistas adjacent to smaller, intimate formal spaces. The major areas within the gardens are the Cutting Garden, Formal Garden, South Lawn, and Woodland Gardens.

  • Great morning to visit Dixon before the heat of the day. Enjoyed seeing the exhibits, as well as the wedding and family photographers utilizing the beautiful scenery.

  • Amazing place to visit. The gardens were larger then expected and the gallery also. It is free (7 normally) for the remainder of 2021, a donation is thanked. Grounds were very kept. Nicely shaded for the hot days, and the a/c is very nice in the gallery. It was in the 90s on our visit. Very friendly staff.
  • We visited Dixon gallery & gardens on Sunday, one of the beautiful natural places in Memphis. No tickets need yo be purchased in 2021. Parking is free. Drinks and food is prohibited inside the art gallery but you can keep it with you in the garden. Loved their ceramic collection!
