This is such a great Palace and gardens, the beauty of the Spanish Colony and taste for art and design. The gardens are marvelous, right on the water, you can picture the times when the ships entered the premises. A must see!!

While in Miami, we left the beach for an afternoon to visit this beautiful landmark. We feel we had arrived in Europe as we entered the grounds. The house with the open atrium was unique as were the surrounding grounds. Because time was a factor, we bought the $3 guide book, instead taking a guided tour. This book provided great... More

Viscaya is in a great location not far from downtown Miami right on the ocean. The gardens have old sculptures that remind you of a by gone era. They are well maintained. Photography is not allowed inside. Photography is allowed outside. You can choose between the recorded self guided tour or wait for the guided tour. We took the guided... More

After living in South Florida for 30 years, my wife and I decided to visit Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. As beautiful as the Museum (house) and Gardens were, my wife and I felt we had seen it all before, both bigger and better. Having been fortunate enough to visit museums and gardens throughout Europe, we were a little jaded. We... More

I've been going to Vizcaya for 20 years now and every time I go, I find a new experience and learn something new about this incredibly interesting and beautiful home/museum/monument. The house was built nearly 100 years ago and is situated on Biscayne Bay. Each room is remarkable and the house has most of it's original artwork and furniture carefully... More

Anyone who thinks Miami is all about South beach and partying... think again! Vizcaya is a beautiful house-museum with a unique and fascinating history told by expert tour guides or seen on your own at your leisure. The grounds are breathtaking, including the pier and gardens. There is a great on-site café overlooking the pool and running around the little... More

My family and I visited Vizcaya during a trip to Miami last week and were really surpised at how beautiful the property is. The grounds are well-maintained and so peaceful. We toured each room of the massive estate and read the descriptions of each. They offered audio tours for $5 but we opted out of this. We loved the opulent... More

To be able to walk into the past is always fascinating ! In our town their is history from all places that we take for granted and to share with our families and learn is one of the greatest gifts!

A beautiful estate with rooms decorated with antiques of European decorative art and furnishings. The grounds are full of wonderful sculptures and several lovely gardens. The back of the house presents a beautiful view of Key Biscayne. There are many wonderful photo opportunities.
