Slightly interesting memorial of a fairly mediocre artist who most likely was coddled benefitting from the wealth of others.

The weather was great to visit this home containing a photographic art exhibit, then walking the sculpture garden of Ann Norton. Included on the grounds is her studio, where you can see how she created some of the sculptures. Very interesting with lots of plants...More

We have been members at ANSG for 10 years. Their special exhibits are varied, always interesting and beautifully displayed. The garden and the monumental sculptures provide a tranquil escape from the downtown scene. My favorite spot is Ann Norton's studio. There is something magical about...More

This is a place unlike any other. A sculpture garden, with new exhibits as artists create. The main sculptures are far more than interesting. Odd shaped human figures, monoliths, and while I visited, there was a bug exhibit, with sculpted bugs as big as cars...More

If you are into nature or sculptures this gem of a place is the way to go! Enjoyed learning of Ann Norton, seeing her beautiful home, amazing gardens, her studio and ohhhh those amazing sculptures. So glad we gave it a try.

This is a nice place but you struggle to spend more than an hour there. I liked the statues but how historic is anything that's decades old rather than centuries old? I guess that's a US thing?

Having lived in the area for 23+ years, I thought it was time to visit this interesting home, garden, and artist's studio, located along the Intracoastal Waterway in the El Cid neighborhood. And, my sister was visiting so this was my birthday present to her!...More

This is a lovely museum where you get to roam the grounds and see the sculpture. Plus, it's right by El Cid, so lovely homes all around the area if you're done with the gardens but want to keep walking around.

Go when the Christmas Tree show is current, the trees they decorate are fantastic. The garden is something that can be done in about 30 minutes and is nice to see how there is a little bit of West Palm that is not destroyed or...More

It is not a big place... depending on your pace it could be seen in a period of 30 minutes to an hour.
