It is a part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and has, not only Art ,but also has replicas of medieval herbal gardens. With the guiding of an excellent docent the members learned a great deal about the history of medicinal plants which are still in gardens today.
In August of 2016 some members of the Centerport Garden Club visited the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary and enjoyed an excellent lecture on the habits of hummingbirds and their floral preferences. As usual the trip included an excellent luncheon.
In August of 2016 the Centerport Garden Club held their monthly meeting and enjoyed a docent led garden tour of the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River NY.
