Worth the visit. Nice museum and grounds. Loved the Rockwell piece “Second Holiday” and the story behind it. Would definitely recommend this small museum to anyone in the Jacksonville area.

Really nice intimate art collection. Great variety of work including a ROCKWELL, HASSAM AND RUBENS. The gardens seem to be rebounding from storm damage. I was very impressed. The ladies at the admissions desk, were so kind, to store my bag.

What an outstanding collection of art in a beautiful place! The hurricane harmed the gardens but they were still gorgeous with dolphin in the river too! Some art I had never seen before. Considering membership!

I’m not sure. They have a reciprocal entrance agreement with the Chicago Botanic Garden. If you are a member of your local Botanic garden, you might get in for free.
