For more than 40 years, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens has been an epicenter for Japanese art and culture in South Florida. The museum invites guests to discover its history and connection with Japan, and to explore its six diverse gardens, each inspired by a different historical period and style of Japanese gardening. Visitors experience traditional and contemporary Japanese culture through engaging exhibits, varied educational programs and seasonal events, a world-class bonsai display, Pan-Asian cuisine, and a distinctive Museum Store. The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is fully accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
