This gem on the St. Johns River has a large collection that covers a considerable patch of 14th through 19th century art. Its European collection contains works by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Rubens and Vasari while the American works include pieces by Gilbert Stuart, John Singer Sargent, Benjamin West, Winslow Homer and Norman Rockwell. There are also sculpture, pottery, jewelry and mosaics from Egypt, Greece and Rome. The Museum occupies the former site of the Cummer family home and its gardens, expanded and restored, are wonderful. Wander the paths through the Italian garden down to the arches overlooking the St. Johns River and then back through the massive plantings of hydrangea and dogwood in the English gardens.
