We attended a wedding, the place is amazing. Nice place to visit, we went in spring and the weather was wonderful to enjoy the garden.

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 love to go here and get out of the hustle and bustle of the day. The permanent collection is serene and masterful with its extensive collection of French impressionist. On warm days the gardens will take away all your stress!
