In honor of Garden Week, we have been working with Wingard Creative to develop a whole host of new interactive elements for the Gardens. We now have a virtual garden tour, a Garden Guide (available in regular and large print), and four new podcast tours including:
- General Tour
- Horticultural Tour
- Family Tour
- Touch Tour.
These podcasts will be available through iTunes for download and as Guide-by-Cell tours. If you are at the Museum, you can also access them through QR codes with a smart phone.
The virtual tour can be accessed while strolling through the Gardens with a smart device, or from your home computer. With this tour you can learn about the Cummer family, the Cummer Oak, and many of the sculptural installations within the Gardens. There is also a timeline of the history of the Gardens while viewing both recent and archival photos.
Stop by and enjoy the new interactives and all of our fun Garden Week events.
