Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, 829 Riverside Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32204

Cummer-Museum-Gardens-Hales_italian-fountainJacksonville’s fine arts museum is revered as much for its permanent collection as it is for the gorgeous gardens originally constructed by premiere landscape architects for the Cummer family.

 

 

The Italian Garden, designed in the 1930s, is the showstopper with its reflecting pools, cypress trees, azaleas and marble sculptures all overlooking the St. John’s River. During Garden Month, the museum offers guided tours of the gardens on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as an outdoor concerts, an afternoon team and lectures.
