Lots of cool things to see but can be pricey. Saw a $1000 pair of 1970 sunglasses that were all scratched.

We went on a tour so our entrance to the museum was included. It is one big room so I would have been horrified to pay a separate entrance fee. The gift shop was enjoyable but ostentatious. Location is easy to find on the ocean side and we love to see Art Deco around the world

We enjoyed the preservation league tour of Art Deco architecture. We learned a lot of interesting facts about Miami beach, it's history, and the hotels.

This place was a great tribute to the Art Deco Era and Miami's Art Deco District!! Some prices are a little high, but there were some interesting items that are real treasures. It is a good tribute to the architecture of Miami!

We did the walking tour on the first morning and it was well worth it, I learnt so much about Art Deco and the guide pointed out things that we never would have noticed without his expertise.

If you like Art Deco this is the place to be steeped in 1920s buildings including Versace's . Easy to walk between all blocks

We took a 90 minute walking tour of the South Beach Art Deco area with Paula, from the Miami Design Preservation League. It was great - she was so knowledgeable and it is great to see South Beach with a basic understanding of the architecture and history. Highly recommended.
