Fodor's Review

The Wark Collection of early-18th-century Meissen porcelain is just one reason to visit this former estate on the St. Johns River, which includes 13 permanent galleries with more than 5,500 items spanning more than 4,000 years, and 3 acres of riverfront gardens, including a sculpture garden and outdoor plaza, that form a showcase for northeast Florida's blooming seasons and indigenous fauna. Art Connections allows kids of all ages to experience art through hands-on, interactive exhibits. The Thomas H. Jacobsen Gallery of American Art focuses on works by American artists, including Max Weber, N.C. Wyeth, and Paul Manship. Complimentary tour guide brochures at front desk help visitors navigate the galleries, as do podcasts.
