I love visiting this museum at different times of the year. The gardens are gorgeous, but offer something different through the seasons. Worth a visit for sure! Especially in April into early May.

besides beautiful gardens which are small enough to navigate in 1-2 hours, there are weekly concerts outdoors in the summer. bring a picnic basket and bottle of wine and enjoy free music under the stars.
