This is a public museum known especially for the fine collection of European and American paintings and of course, the holdings of the Meissen porcelain. The gardens were listed in the National Register of Historic Places in the year 2010.
The museum was established in 1961 where there was the former house of Arthur and Ninah Cummer. There are 3 flower gardens here and the oldest dates back to 1903. The lovely collection of the museum includes works even 6000 years old. There is also a Tudor style building just adjacent to the gardens where the public events and programs are hosted.
- Photography and filming are not allowed in the gallery.

One of Jacksonville's treasures. The Cummer has a range of art from Greek and Roman times to Renaissance to Modern including a few masters. Besides the artwork, I love the gardens. Currently they are being replaced from hurricane Irma flood damage. It's still calming and beautiful and has my favorite tree in Jacksonville. A giant oak with limbs that reach the ground and go up again. Cummer is always at the top of my list for showing people new to Jacksonville. Some of the exhibits even cover Florida history. Oh and I think kids will enjoy the hands on section. They also have a cafe and live music sometimes. However the last two times I've been around 6:30 pm, 90-95 percent of the tables are reserved with no one sitting there. All I want is to sit and have a cappuccino.
The Augusta Savage exhibit was exceptional and the permanent pieces are beautiful pieces of art. We all enjoyed the hands-on section as well. The gardens are still being repaired after Irma, but the view of the river is pleasant with a nice breeze.
Very impressive collection of art across all different time periods, plus some great special exhibits! The gardens are lovely to walk through as well, even though they are still doing some restoration work from the flooding Hurricane Irma caused. Another plus? Tuesday evenings are free, with tapas and wine offered (for purchase) at the cafe with live music!
Eclectic collection of Anerican and mainly Dutch artists. Great space and light. Lovely cafe, highly recommended. Fair price entry. Worth an hour or two, and say a detour of 20/30 miles.
Great variety of artwork available! The garden is breathtaking! You wouldn't imagine that this gem is within a populated area like Jacksonville! If you wish to; you can schedule events in the museum. Ultimately, the museum offers discounts for military personnel and college students.
