The Museum also boasts the Wark Collection of Early Meissen Porcelain.
The Museum is surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens, the oldest of which date back to 1903 and some of which have recently been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Other exhibits include the ‘Plains of East Africa’, highlighting African savanna animals; ‘Great Apes of the World’, featuring two of the four great apes among other primates; the ‘Australian Outback’, including lorikeets, cassowaries, and kangaroos; and ‘Wild Florida’, which features animals native to the state of Florida.
If you are wondering what to do in Jacksonville with kids, this is a great place to visit.
Visit the Cummer Museum of Art and take a romantic walk through the manicured gardens, stroll along the river past the famous Friendship Fountain and shop at the Riverside Arts Market.
