The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is the largest fine arts museum in Northeast Florida. The Cummer was established in 1958, when art collector, garden enthusiast, and civic leader Nina Cummer bequeathed her art collection and riverfront home to create a museum.
Today, the core collection of sixty pieces from Mrs. Cummer’s estate has grown to include more than 5,000 works of art. The historic gardens, set against the backdrop of the St. Johns River, serve as a centerpiece of beauty for all to enjoy.
