The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is the largest fine arts museum in Northeast Florida. The Cummer was established in 1958, when art collector, garden enthusiast, and civic leader Ninah Cummer bequeathed her art collection and riverfront home to create a museum. Today, the core collection of 60 pieces from Mrs. Cummer's estate has grown to include more than 5,000 works of art. The historic gardens, set against the backdrop of the St. Johns River, serve as a centerpiece of beauty for all to enjoy.
The success and growth of the Museum depends largely on dedicated individuals and local businesses like you who support our mission of engaging and inspiring through art, gardens, and education. Membership provides you with access to dynamic programs, free entry into all ticketed exhibitions, and valuable discounts to events, the Cummer Café, and the Shop —all while supporting our efforts to make the Museum accessible and fun for everyone in Jacksonville.
