Don't spend on this one. Older art, a mere handful of pieces, confined to one small room. The rest of the huge rooms have a few sparse pieces by, to me, largely unknown modern artists. Unless you like Robert Mapplethorpe, quite a bit of that. Not even a cafe. If there was a shop, I didn't find it. Perez Museum... More

Was disappointing. Firstly, parking is extremely limited. after over 45 min's efforts to find parking somewhere afar we finally got in. the exhibitions did not meet my expectations, simply it is not my type.nonetheless, it might appeal to other people. the settings and the way of display are acceptable. also a leaflet that explains the art pieces that are numbered,...

Not too many visitors to Miami come there for anything more than the sun, surf, or the sand. If you want a nice exposure to some fine art, this is the place to come to.

If you like contemporary art, you'll love this museum. Architecturally significant building where the exhibits are always changing. If you have time, go on a docent led tour. Very interactive and insightful. The museum cafeteria is also quite good so feel free to stop for a bite.

We were unaware that the museum's upper floor is closed and their new exhibit does not open until December. Just a small "Gold" exhibit and one small room which had an eclectic collection with a mummy, painting and carvings. What was open was very interesting. Just wished I knew there was very little to see at present before I paid... More

From the outside, the building itself is a modern work of art, and its enormous size suggests that there would be a lot to see inside. Big mistake! At least when I visited, 90 percent of the floor space was devoted to huge displays by one folk artist of his soup can lids strung together into gigantic carpets. But when... More

I like the exhibition done with found objects. What normally would be considered trash was recycled into a tapestries of art. I like the video interview with the artist giving a further incite. The video of this international installation was also every interesting. I always like going to the Bass because their exhibits are so unusual. This one from a... More
