I just love this museum. The collection displays are wonderful. While small it has a big impact. Attend any of the wonderful programs offered. Most are free and extremely good. This year there was a full day of celebration for Chinese New Year. A real family event. This is a wonderful little art museum. A true must see of local... More

Scrambling to find things to do indoors in the frigid February weather we took Trip Advisors advice and visited this lovely little museum and were treated to a wonderful collection of young Cuban artists. "Voices of the Island" is a wonderful collection of Cuban artist Reynier Llanes and well worth the visit on its own merit. The museum houses several... More

The ladies at the front desk were very nice. It's in a beautiful spot for afternoon tea. They had some great "coloring pages" for my son to pretend he was Matisse!

Coming from New York, I knew that this was not going to be another "MET" but considering what was shown, little cost to enter, it was a nice place to visit for a short to medium visit. The staff is very friendly & helpful.

We were staying across the street at the South Beach Resort and decided to stop in. I was expecting to see local artists work, but was blown away by an expansive and impressive traveling exhibit (the work of Binh Pho). The exhibits were beautiful and thought provoking. You can easily spend a couple of hours here. Upstairs exhibits were being... More

Very beautiful and challenging artist choices. Gorgeous beachside dining room/gallery. Staff is helpful and welcoming. You can explore a few hours, get away from the crowds and into a calm elegant space with other art lovers. Lurve this place!!!

This great little museum is free and had a very interesting exhibit of Binh Pho's work. I was unfamiliar with his art, but really enjoyed the exhibit. After leaving I researched his art online- which is a good outcome for a museum visitor! The museum is next to a large resort, not where you would expect to find it. Limited... More

great shows -its a bit small but that is overcome by the energy of the docents. Spend some time there - you wont regret it.
