“Not large but good South American art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We enjoyed our visit. The information provided on the artists was good and the collection of South American art (which we weren't familiar with) was interesting and informative.

We asked about somewhere to have lunch and were directed over to the small Cuban cafe opposite where we had a very good meal and a warm welcome.

“good choice for family trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

we absolutely reccomend to visit the second saturday of the month 'cos it's free, otherwise the price of 8 usd wouldn't be acceptable for what they offer.
at the entrance there is a wonderful huge lobby to entertain kids allowing their art to come out.
there are many tables with scissors, gloves, paper of many colors to let them express themselves.
2 floors show artistic pictures, portraits and modern sculptures .
i probably don't understand modern art so it didn't impress me very much but when it's free you spend a pleasant hour wandering around.
don't forget: visit it the second saturday of each month, if you can.
;-)

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I recommend a visit Miami Art Museum, the museum's exhibits quite good, There is a focus on local and Latin artists - mainly contemporary - which I've found very interesting.
$5 parking and $8 each to see.

“Waste of money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

$5 parking and $8 each to see ONE ROOM of art. I say art but there were NO paintings, just a few photos and a couple of abstract pieces. We were out in 10 minutes. Don't waste your money.

“Far below expectations - don't bother!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

After viewing 1 exhibit featuring 1 artist and 3 security guards, I asked if there was a second floor or something else I may have missed. The answer: "No, there was another exhibit but we took it down on Sunday." Oh. I don't know why they bother having this museum at all.

This would have been an absolute waste of my time and money if I hadn't bought a combo ticket for the Miami History Museum.
