My granddaughter loves the Cummer. The gardens are beautiful and the exhibits change--- always adding a new perspective. The best Museum in Jacksonville--- plus Tuesday evenings are free.

Lots of interesting art to see, no crowd to limit your viewing. The gardens are barely open due to storm damage, BUT seeing the MASSIVE tree in the garden is worth the trip alone.

Great location, with a nice selection of art inside. Unfortunately all the outdoor gardens are currently closed. Nice way to spend an hour or so. Will try again when Gardens reopen.
