They have some nights where there is no admission charge . Check their website to see when these are . Probably less worth it if you have to... More

Made a special trip to this museum today, hard to find where we were supposed to park (very poor signage), finally got there and there was not even one exhibit open. Made a special trip through traffic from SoBe, after having looked at their website. Nothing indicated NOT to make the trip there. At least the bathroom was open! Extremely... More

I have heard that the museum is seeking a new site so perhaps that is why they only had one exhibit which was interesting, but it was a short trip so keep that in mind.

It was interesting and very good and had good global perspective despite it was not so comprehensive. Space and colors were very well arranged.

Maybe I got big expectations but this is by far the most boring museum I have ever been in. Pros: No pros Cons: *5 Dollars and you can only pay them in cash. 10 minutes visit at max. There's nothing to see. Do not go until you want to waste your time.

I drove all the way to this Museum, far away from my hotel, just to find that it was closed because they were organizing exhibits, something which was NOT advertised on the web page. A pity that things like this happens when the city is trying to change its shallow image. I really thought that Miami was changing from simply... More

This is probably the worst art museum I have ever visited in the US. The collection is small, unimpressive, and boring. Be it not for the horrendously rude staff, nothing about the visit would evoke any emotion other than boredom.
