My family has always enjoyed the Cummer. History, art, beautiful gardens, and a hands-on children's area.You or child can take classes, eat lunch in the cafe, attend an event or even a wedding in this gem of our city.

Had the very great priviledge of attending a fabulous wedding reception at the Cummer Museum. Such a stunning setting, and the food was amazing. We were so engrossed in the magic of the occasion, we sadly left it too late to tour the museum exhibits!

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.
