Extensive gardens, nicely laid out. Sort of out of season, not covered up with blooms. The museum is all about the Rose Festival and it's queens. Several elaborate gowns on display, but no where do they tell you that the queens are chosen by a...More

Start at the top by the upper parking stalls and go through the paths, Idea Garden and the rose gardens. Everything is clearly labeled and maintained perfectly. You will need about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to really see it all. But, you can do...More

It helps to know the history of the Garden before or after your tour. But the experience it self will be more than satisfying. The Garden is well themed and accommodates parking and traffic well. It is popular but your viewing is rarely interrupted with...More

My knockouts are blooming. Yea roses may be a bit early but we've had such a mild winter you may find them in full bloom. The museum is worth the visit. Enjoy. It's dogwood and azalea time in east Texas.
