Great gardens, so much to see even with so little rain the flowers looked great. The museum staff were very helpful and welcoming. Entry is free and parking near by is also reasonable.

The gardens are beautifully kept, I loved my visit and will definitely be returning again soon. The museum is free so that was an added bonus.
