A marvelous getaway for a half day away from the sand and crowds. Beautifully maintained gardens with water features and freshwater turtles and koi. Historic notes. So nice to have an outdoor activity that provides shade and beauty in a not so beautiful part of Florida. Excellent food at the cafe. Interesting museum shop. Beautiful art exhibit inside the main...

These beautiful, peaceful gardens are filled with statues, flowers, fish, ponds, waterfalls and trees that wend their way along a mile or so path. There are plenty of wonderful spots to sit and relax and contemplate. There is also a wonderful gift shop in the main building.

The Japanese fare was perfect and the stroll around the gardens mesmerizing. We live 15 minutes away but only seem to go when guest are in town. My New Years resolution is to go 4 X a year.

Visited the Gardens shortly after we landed in Florida. What a way to zen out after the hustle and bustle of a flight. A beautifully laid out garden that encourages one to take time to enjoy the plants in thoughtful contemplation. Pretty sculptures, places to rest, bridges, trees and flowers. Even some water stations with icy cold water. A wonderful... More

We are a fan of gardens and have seen plenty. This went beyond being " a garden " and instead was an experience of beauty, culture and history The gardens themselves were magnificent; perfectly groomed and incorporating all the aspects of a Japanese Garden. The sounds of the bamboo grove moving in the wind was worth the price of admission.... More

A rare treat in tropical south Florida. The gardens are well maintained and the shop and food are reasonably priced. A great place to take out of state visitors.

We spent 2 hours at this garden and the museum. It is not too big, yet it is quite well kept and has interesting paths, and gardens that really helped me reflect. I certainly recommend it.

While staying in Delray Beach saw the signs for the museum and decided to check it ou. I'm glad I did the Japanese garden is a hidden treasure. Great place to just unwind and have a family luncheon.
