  • The gardens were very beautiful. We went on Tuesday and didn’t have to pay to get in which was a surprise. It was a bit smaller than what I’m used to but the collection of artwork was beautiful. This museum is delightful, offering a nice collection of art. The building itself is lovely, well designed, and made for a great experience. Don't miss the gardens. They are still recovering from Hurricane Irma, but still beautiful. The Cummer Oak is absolutely amazing.
  • The Cummer is a great family place. Wonderful activities for kids and they have free nights. Its a great way to enjoy time, see some beautiful art and get out of the house without spending a lot of money. Beautiful outside gardens with music and drinks available. Wonderful place to sit and enjoy the weather and the St. Johns River.
