I have been wanting to visit this place since before our first trip to Sarasota. It was closed for renovations or for the off-season every other time we have been in town. It closes tomorrow until November, so we took advantage of the longer afternoon to finally tour the museum and gardens.
I can safely say that, next to the beach, this is my favorite place in Sarasota! There is art everywhere...the walls, the gardens, the parking lot, the restroom, the trees!
