“Not what we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Think of it as a hotel travel brochure rack on steroids... but in a great location. Don't make a special trip to stop by here, but do drop in if you are walking the beach or touring the architecture of the Deco District. They do have info on some walking tours.

“Could use more experienced staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Inconsistent info about the various biking options in SOBE, however, we bought tickets to a 6:30 pm walking tour of the Art Deco District that proved to be excellent.

“Great help and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The ladies were very helpful and informative, not just a centre for Art Deco history but for the whole of Miami beach. Audio walking tour was good fun, a nice way to learn more about the history and you can stop and look about shops, hotels and have food at your own pace.
