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.

Wonderful landmark

If you're visiting South Florida or even if you live here, you should visit The Vizcaya. The house is amazing and the gardens are spectacular. A must see.

The grounds and the house are both beautiful as is the view of the water. I had a lovely time just wandering around, oohing and aahing at the furnishings and art and relaxing in the gardens. It's definitely worth several hours of your time. Kids probably wouldn't want to spend that much time there. They have a small restaurant with... More

Took the very informative guided tour of the ground floor of the house before exploring the second floor, terrace and gardens. Interesting and scenic throughout. Had a good lunch in the Cafe. Worth visiting this museum and finding out about the history amongst the modernity of Miami.

If you are visiting Miami this is a must visit. The house and grounds are unimaginable. It's like stepping back in time. Also be sure to visit the gift shop and restaurant. Both are run a one of the country's top caterers (A Joy Wallace Catering) It is going to far exceed what you think a gift shop is. We... More

Really great treat to see this museum. Originally the private residence of James Deering of Int'l Harvester wealth. Built 100 years ago looking out on Biscayne Bay. Audio guide is worth the 5 bucks as it explains the sight in superb detail. Not to be missed if your interests extend beyond the beach, golf, boating etc

I am so glad I came across this place on a website. It was sooooo worth it! I love museums and History, Miami is not exactly known for these so finding the Vizcaya Museum was a thrill. We explored every inch of it and took the most amazing pictures of the trip. The place is simply GORGEOUS!!! They sell narrative... More

Vizcaya is a great place to visit but one detail needs to be corrected if its to get a five star rating. The prevailing wind off Biscayne Bay brings a great deal of floating trash to shore behind the Tea House. Part of the facilities routine daily maintenance should be to send an employee in a boat to pick up... More

Opulence of an era gone by .... Beautifully built, amazing setting, wonderfully displayed items of times past. Great place to visit during the winter months. The weather can be hot and humid during the summer months.
