Arts & Culture  


History or art, culture, science and even railroads ― our museums have something on display for everyone’s interests.

Miami museums cover a broad range of interests. From contemporary to historical treasures, Miami’s cultural and art museums offer an overview of international art drawn from private collections and traveling exhibitions. You’ll find out about Miami’s earliest inhabitants at HistoryMiami, which has interactive exhibits and offers exciting boat, walking, coach and eco-history tours of Miami.

Art buffs have a wealth of options, including Downtown Miami's Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) where admission is free every first Thursday and second Saturday of the month. There's also the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Frost Museum of Art at Florida International University and the Lowe Art Museum. On Miami Beach, the Bass Museum of Art features Old Masters as well as modern and contemporary exhibits. For a history of modern design, look no further than Wolfsonian-FIU. Located in the heart of the South Beach Art Deco District you'll find the World Erotic Art Museum (WEAM), that houses the world's largest public view collection of erotic art, with thousands of fascinating, one-of-a-kind historical and contemporary pieces. The collection covers all centuries, cultures, art mediums and lifestyles.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens has many amazing antiques-filled rooms to explore, along with enchanting formal gardens. A humbler yet no less fascinating historic home is The Barnacle House, built in 1891 by Coconut Grove pioneer Ralph Munroe.

The Jewish Museum of Florida is housed in a 1936 Art Deco synagogue on Miami Beach.
