Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

This is such a gorgeous place with a zillion opportunities for unique photos and rich history. Kind staff, kind people were there in general offering to take pictures for us and we did like wise. It feels absolutely like a world set aside. Great!

This is so beautiful that many wedding photos are staged here. It's worth the money just to see the way the rich and famous used to live in Miami. It's in Coconut Grove, so use the day to also tour the Grove.

It was my first time at the museum. The house is beautiful. Each room tells a story of the owner and architects passion for classic European design. The view of the bay is breathtaking. The manicured gardens are peaceful & scenic to walk through. This is a great place to visit via car, trolley or local bus. As a city... More

Upon entering the location I was fascinated by the architecture. I was eager to explore the property until my party and I we were rudely greeted by the staff at the ticket booth. They discriminated me because I was wearing a sunhat (it was 100 degrees and I have a medical condition that won't allow me to be directly exposed... More

The house and the gardens outside were such a great experience. Nice coffee shop on the location as well. However, pictures were not allowed in the inside of the house.

We spent most of our time in the gardens. Such a beautiful place!! Since you can't take photos inside, we sort of just blew through that. Absolutely worth the time and money!!!

If you wanna go back in time to 19th century gardens you have to come here. But NEVER forget your camera or you won't forgive yourself, ever. Be sure you don't miss a thing, people usually stay in the front, go to the back, you will find magic places there. There is also a nice nice cafeteria. I won't tell... More
