Cheekwood is a 55-acre American Country Place Era estate in Nashville, Tennessee. Built in 1929 by the Cheek family, who amassed their fortune in part through the Maxwell House Coffee business, the estate was gifted and opened as a public institution in 1960.

Today, it features 12 distinct gardens, a woodland sculpture trail, a 7,000 piece permanent collection and a Georgian-style Mansion with historically furnished rooms and galleries. Over 225,000 visitors come to Cheekwood annually for year-round seasonal festivals, world-class art exhibitions, breathtaking gardens, and educational and public programs for all ages.

A member of the American Public Gardens Association, Cheekwood is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Its mission is to preserve Cheekwood as an historical landmark where beauty and excellence in art and horticulture stimulate the mind and nurture the spirit.

Chihuly at Cheekwood will feature multi-media artist Dale Chihuly’s monumental sculptures presented throughout the historic estate, in its gardens. This exhibition marks the 10th anniversary since Chihuly's last exhibition at the historic estate and commemorates Cheekwood's 60th anniversary as a public institution.

The exhibition will feature artwork from iconic series, including two new installations designed specifically for Cheekwood’s environment.

The Manor tickets can be purchased at Cheekwood for a timed ticket that day or just enjoy the 12 beautiful themed Gardens.

Cheekwood is committed to making its exhibitions, programs and services as accessible as possible, and is actively working to make its grounds and facilities user-friendly. However, due to the historic nature of much of the gardens and mansion, some areas may present challenges to those in wheelchairs, or who have difficulty walking or climbing. Cheekwood provides manually operated wheelchairs as a courtesy to our guests. They are available on a first come, first served basis and can be checked-out from the Visitor Services Center.
