Every Tuesday, enjoy free admission to the Cummer Museum and its historic gardens, thanks to the generous support of Florida Blue. In addition each Tuesday evening, the Cummer Café is open for Tapas Tuesday, sponsored by VyStar Credit Union.

The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is located at 829 Riverside Avenue in the historic Riverside section of Jacksonville, just minutes from Interstate 95. The Cummer Museum overlooks 2.5 acres of historic gardens and is situated on the banks of the St. Johns River. The Cummer Museum is the perfect blend of art, gardens, and education that inspires imagination and excitement for all ages, with a fantastic lineup of exhibitions and programs for the entire family.

The Museum is home to more than 5,000 works of art, spanning from 2100 B.C. through the 21st century. Thought-provoking exhibitions, a breathtaking sculpture garden, and several special collections enhance the Museum's artistic offerings. The Cummer’s historic riverfront gardens bear the mark of notable landscape designers and horticulturists, including Ossian Cole Simonds, Ellen Biddle Shipman, Thomas Meehan and Sons, and the fabled Olmsted firm.
