These gardens would be worth travelling to even if they were not part of the Museum of Art site. Great variety of landscape, peaceful and wonderfully relaxing. Be sure to visit.

You can stroll the beautiful grounds & take a tour of the mansion and see how the rich lived during the end of the Gilded Age. Unbelievable wealth in a time when the average American struggled to put food on the table. It is comforting...More

This is rated as one of the best art museums in the country. I go several times a year because it's hard to take in even a fraction of what it has to offer in one visit. There are also special exhibitions, classes and lectures....More
