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!
