To engage and inspire through the arts, gardens, and education.
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is a vital community partner that reaches out to diverse audiences through outstanding artistic offerings, dynamic learning experiences, and opportunities to participate in the beauty of the natural world. The Museum is an environment in which joy and discovery infuse all that we do. Arts, gardens, and education converge to create meaningful personal experiences and open a world of new possibilities. We honor our rich history, embrace the energy of our time, and commit to a vibrant future through the advancement of resources to grow and deepen our mission.
The Museum is currently closed. We are working hard on reopening plans to welcome you back very soon. Our goal is to create the safest and best visitor experience that is centered around the highest quality works of art and historic gardens that are accessible and fun for everyone. As we now get ready to again open our doors, please be assured that we have been developing an extensive plan which implements the highest level health and safety protocols. We will share our plans to reopen on our website and social channels, so please check back and stay in touch!
