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.

Been to Miami many times and had never visited Villa Vizcaya, an early 20th century reflection of the influences and styles of the then rich and famous. A main house with all the latest technological amenities, European in taste but yet modern, indoor plumbing, refrigeration, formal gardens, music instruments, collector items, and to top it off a village for the...

My family and I loved visiting this building and gardens. We enjoyed the history, decoration, furniture and the way it is preserved. Prices are $18.00 adults and $10.00 students with ID. I recommend the visit!!

This museum is located in the area of Coconut Grove in a residential area. This museum was a crazy mind billionaire idea that wants a house with all-time art styles. And if you mix all art styles in same place sometimes ends badly. Like a fan of art, you will thrill with some of art present inside; some styles are... More

It was the second time I had come here. I had a really nice experience. We saw/covered the whole grounds. Loved it here. It's so romantic and such a pretty place for pictures. The scenery is breath taking. If I were to go to Miami again I would def go.
