Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens


Located in Delray Beach, Florida, Morikami Park covers 200 acres.  Its mission is to provide authentic Japanese cultural experiences that entertain, educate and inspire. The land was donated by an early Japanese settler, George Sukeji Morikami, and contains tranquil pine forests, nature trails, lakes, waterfalls, and of course Japanese Gardens, complete with Bonsai trees.

In keeping with its mission, classes, festivals, and youth programs all related to the Japanese culture are offered on the grounds and in the museum throughout the year.


The gardens are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Admission for adults is $15.00, and for children, $9.00.
