The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens invites you to come take a moment to experience the healing power of art in nature.

The Museum is excited to announce its reopening plans to welcome you back this summer, beginning in phases on June 20, 2020. The first phase of the Museum’s reopening will provide access to the historic riverfront gardens; phase two will include reopening the Museum’s galleries and exhibitions.

June 20 through 21 | The gardens will reopen for a special FREE admission weekend for everyone in our community. Timed tickets are required and must be reserved here

  • FREE admission on Saturday, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., sponsored by Florida Blue.
  • FREE admission on Sunday, June 21, will be available from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

June 23 through 26 | The gardens will open to members only from Tuesday, June 23, through Friday, June 26. Timed tickets are required and must be reserved here.

June 27 | The gardens will reopen under normal operating hours to everyone in the community starting Saturday, June 27. Timed tickets are required and must be reserved here.

In order to prioritize the health of guests and staff, and to minimize touch points and onsite capacity, all visitors must reserve a timed ticket for entry. Tickets will be for two-hour time increments and are limited per time slot. Be sure to secure your preferred time before tickets sell out. Tickets for the upcoming week will be added every Monday morning. Check back often for updates.

Tickets are free to members and children 5 and under. Tickets for adults, seniors, military, and students are $5. Healthcare workers and first responders (with ID) are free. And don't forget, everyone can take advantage of our free admission days.

The galleries and exhibitions will reopen during phase two later this summer. If you have questions or concerns please contact Visitor Experience at or 904.356.6857.
