A recently discovered alternative to the indoors, going "outside" offers adventurous explorers exposure to things such as wind, sunshine, and the naturally occurring mazes found in corn fields. Leave the indoors with today's Groupon to the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, near the University of Memphis's Central Avenue Campus. E-members enjoy admission to the museum and gardens for 12 months and four foliage-filled seasons, staying in the loop with e-mailed communiqué that reduces the amount of paper floating around the atmosphere. Inside the museum, art aficionados of all ages encounter pieces from a collection of over 2,000 works of art, including French Impressionism and decorative art objects. To commune with Mother Nature, stroll 17-acres of lush garden, where thousands of tulips will be making their perennial peak in the spring, or check the event schedule to find performances and educational programs that promote inter-human connections.

Reviews

Seven Yelpers and seven TripAdvisors give the Dixon Gallery and Gardens averages of 4.5 stars. Frommer's highly recommends it:

  • The South's finest collection of French and American Impressionist and post-Impressionist artworks is the highlight of this exquisite museum, set on 17 wooded acres. The museum, art collection, and surrounding 17 acres of formal and informal gardens once belonged to Margaret and Hugo Dixon, who were avid art collectors. After the deaths of the Dixons, their estate opened to the public as an art museum and has since become one of Memphis's most important museums. – Frommer's
  • I love the Dixon. Sure, the permanent collection is impressive and the exhibitions are always well thought out and of great interest to the arts community (Rodrigue's Blue Dog is a favorite), but there is so much more to this historical place than just the beautiful Impressionist paintings. – Tanya T., Yelp

Dixon Gallery and Gardens

The perfect frame can make a work of art leap off of a wall. For the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, the overall layout frames a 2,000-piece museum with 17 acres of lush English gardens. Tulip-lined walkways, scenic vistas, and the occasional sculpture surround visitors on tours of the Tennessee woodlands, where oaks and hickories climb towards the sky where all the good sunlight is. In total, more than 120 identified species of trees live and breathe within the gardens' level IV arboretum.

Even more sights await visitors behind the museum’s corinthian columns and brick façade. Eight to ten rotating exhibitions a year hang alongside a permanent collection that touches on paper works, sculptures, and paintings by French and American impressionists—from Claude Monet to Mary Cassatt. Beyond these ever-present attractions, the museum also hosts live performances, educational programs, and other special events.

The gardens are lovely and the art exhibits are wonderful.

The Dixon is a wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon. Their resident collection is worth seeing time and time again, and the guest exhibits are some of the best.
