Cheekwood is a wonderful place to visit if you love art and nature! The historic mansion holds hundreds of western/American artwork and original furnishings from the original family who owned the estate. It was neat to see the Lego exhibition in the botanical garden too! The gardens there are lovely and they are a great reason to take a stroll and enjoy the sights and sounds of Nature in Tennessee. I highly recommend visiting cheekwood if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Downtown Nashville.
Great place to visit. We would like to see more signage on plants to know what the plants are. The walking paths are well maintained. Would like to also see more benches on the path heading up to the Mansion. It would also be nice to have some benches inside the Mansion. To be more friendlier to people who may need to rest for various reasons and so be able to visit such a great place!! The gift shop and cafe should stay open longer. We are contemplating becoming members.
The 3 women on staff inside the mansion were delightful and insightful! I didn't get any of their names. Outside of the mansion a guy named Bob was also very helpful and informative!
The grounds were beautiful! Its not overwhelmingly large but big enough that you'll want to wear comfortable shoes. Some areas may also be damp so nothing you need to keep super clean.
I’ve been a member for a couple years now and lately I’ve seen a lot of reviews remarking that the gift shop is only open to people who purchased tickets for the mansion. Well yes, the gift shop in the mansion is only open to those people who have tickets to view the mansion, there are other gift shops on the campus. No one seems to remember/remark about those. Just ask customer service/member services and they will be more than happy to point out all of the available places to purchase souvenirs, books and other Gift shop items.
About the rest of the garden, very well taken care of and the flowers are often changed out seasonally. There’s usually some sort of long-term art exhibit in the mansion if not more than one. Some of the recent improvements were not to my taste but I can see why they were done. It’s worth purchasing a membership as, for the price of a ticket and the amount of time it takes to go through the gardens which for me is under two hours, it’s much more fiscally responsible to purchase a membership and be able to come multiple times for shorter periods of time rather than feel like I have to eat every penny out of my ticket and end up disappointed, aggravated, or annoyed.
I like to enjoy the Japanese garden in peace so if there are too many people who don’t respect others and their surroundings sometimes the volume of conversations and shouting at each other gets to be obnoxious. So I can just leave and come back at another time when it’s less busy. Having a membership also allows you to come visit in all of the seasons and all of the weather. A lot of the trees and grounds are actually, in my opinion, more gorgeous after a rain when the greens are so bright the moss is hydrated and the mushrooms are popping out of the ground. It also tends to have the benefit of being much less busy and you get to enjoy a much more peaceful experience.
