Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art Review

Thirty acres of gardens at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art showcase annuals, perennials, and seasonal wildflowers. The museum, in a carefully restored neo-Georgian mansion once home to the Cheek family of Maxwell House coffee fame, has a permanent collection of American art. It also hosts temporary exhibitions. The extensive gardens have recently been renovated with new spaces and, at this writing, are scheduled to be augmented by new lighting. Children's activities include art projects, special programming, a tree house, and a garden railroad display.
