About Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
The Morikami Museum was founded in 1977 on land donated by George Morikami, a member of the Yamato farming community. It has been a center for Japanese arts and culture in South Florida with rotating exhibitions, educational programs, outreach with local schools and organizations, and special events. The principal museum building opened in 1993 and in 2001, 16-acres that surround the Morikami’s two museum buildings was developed to include an expansive Japanese garden with strolling paths, resting areas, our world-class bonsai collection, and six gardens that reflect major periods of Japanese Garden design, from the 8th to the 20th century, and serves as an outdoor extension of the museum. The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, with its unique gardens and collections, is one of Palm Beach County’s most treasured cultural attractions. Located in a tranquil natural setting, Morikami invites visitors to explore its many facets and discover Florida’s heritage and its connection with Japan. To learn more, visit www.morikami.org.
