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.
When you arrive, check out the "Exploring with Kids" guides! These guides are intended for families not just to use while visiting at the Museum, but also to take home with them. The guide focuses on giving parents tips on how to visit museums with their children, info on the Art Connections area, classes for children, maps, and activities for parents to do with their kids. The Let’s Explore! page is perforated for child and parent to fold back activities as they are completed.
