We loved this place. The art was gorgeous, the grounds were breathtaking, the staff bent over backwards to be helpful and informative. A special exhibit on "Scent and Symbolism: Perfumed Objects and Images" was on display when we were there, and even include information in the greenhouse about how perfume oils are distilled. Thorough enjoyed ourselves.

We stopped by after visiting the Botanical Gardens across the street and like this much better. The flowers were spectacular and easy to see and were identified. The Museum is well kept and had a temporary exhibit of American contemporary art plus has a permanent collection to view. The gardens and the Museum can be seen in under two hours. Easy to view,

Gardens are always in excellent shape with care taken for tranquil gardens and varying exhibits. Tulips and dogwoods in full force this last visit. If you are an educators they welcome you with a free admission with an ID. The volunteers there are always very friendly and willing to share their gardening advice.

This attraction has a beautiful collection of flowering trees and flowers.

There is no category for adults WITHOUT teenagers, WITHOUT children.
