The Dixons were a childless couple who collected art, both fine and decorative, and left it all to the city when they died. The permanent collection ranges from mediocre to good. The traveling exhibits, however, are often spectacular, and have included Faberge eggs, glassworks by Seattle artist Dale Chihuly and an explosion of color from Raoul Dufy. The 17-acre garden is usually open for strolling, except during outdoor concerts, picnics or theater productions. The museum shop often has items from Memphis' Great Wonders exhibits!
