This is a small private museum and garden with a lovely Impressionist collection. This would be especially nice in scale for older travelers or for introducing a young child to art. The gardens are charming.

Dixon Gallery and Gardens is a gem in east Memphis area. The main building consists of both permanent art collected by the Dixon Family and traveling shows. The gardens get better every year and are open year round. They have special events for families throughout the year.

The gallery, which also combines a former residence , has many beautiful pictures, some of which are by noted artists, such as Van Dyck and Matisse, etc. Be sure and see the huge and beautiful gardens, in addition. This is a popular place for weddings.

It was too rainy to see the gardens right across the street, which are supposed to be spectacular. But we did visit the museum and we astounded and the quality of the collection of great impressionist paintings. Well worth the visit!

This has a very super collection of Impressionist paintings, pewter and porcelain. The grounds are well tended and beautiful. The water features add an air of serenity. There was a wedding going on and the setting could not be better.
