Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

The museum is set next to Biscayne Bay with views of Key Biscayne. This former mansion of James Deering reflects his attempts to match the mansions... More

You can get to the Museum from Downtown Miami using the free Trolley Service. We walked from the road through the hammocks to the entrance booths. Nice gardens in front of the house. Went in and were given a plan of the house and gardens. Lovely building with trees in an internal glazed coutrtyard. It was smaller than we had... More

Very interesting history behind this home, I really enjoyed touring this place. I went with my brother and we had a really great time. Something different to see and a lot to take in! It was a little annoying with the amount of young girls having photography sessions for their cotillion. However, the grounds were so gorgeous, I can definitely... More

Was taken here without knowing about it. Was very surprised and enlightened. The property is a very historic site and is under constant renovation. The main house museum tour was very informative and the artifacts take you back to early days before south Florida was Miami. The property is extensive and has many areas to explore from the back patio... More

Hadn't really done any research before we visited so the whole place was a surprise. Kinda blew us away! Visited in late March 2015. The folly made us laugh and laugh - it's fantastic. Stayed looking at it for ages. Note that others thought the place was run down and lacking maintenance, but other than noting there were still sections... More

This is the wonderful mansion/museum home of one of the last centuries early industrialists. Wonderfully restored and a way to glimpse what life was like to the truly wealthy of the time. Grounds are beautiful and the tour is well worth the small extra charge. A great way to spend a day!
