The gardens and gallery are both small compared to others but together they make a very nice combo. The grounds are well kept. The art is housed in an historic home which also adds to the attraction.

Not too much in bloom this time of year but the art sculptures and Gallery are very nice. A bit out of town but easy to find. This is near Gibson's Donuts so we stopped there for donuts after YUM

The house and gardens are a lovely retreat from the bustle of other Memphis attractions. Quiet and peaceful.

Fabulous museum and gardens right on the Park Ave. bus line. Free for educators! (Thank you Dixon!). Loved the misters out in the garden, and plenty of shade in the gardens.

I don't think so. When we were there, I asked if the grounds stayed open after the museum closes at 5; I was told no. Might be worth a call to them though
