The gardens looked beautiful from the road so we just stopped and walked around. No charge for gardens...we did not go inside to see the art but there was plenty to look at outside. Will stop here again sometime to see the art inside.

The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The art included was sparse so I am glad we had a Groupon. I would say it's worth it just for the grounds and the scenery alone.

My daughters and I spent some time in the museum inside and outside. The beautiful view of the ocean is a picture in itself.. The sculptures outside are great. The art inside very interesting. The staff very courteous and helpful.
