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.

Tucked away in North Miami is a tiny, but worthwhile little museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art. Rather than trying to cover contemporary art, the museum rotates its exhibits. On the day we visited, the British contemporary artist Tracey Emin was the entire exhibit. Although...More

This museum has a terrific contemporary art collection. The curators here put on excellent shows. Although it's in North Miami (I wish it were either in Miami Beach or Downtown), it's worth the trip.

I visited on a Sunday and took advantage of BofA's free museum entry program. The current exhibit is interesting and worth seeing. I won't try to describe each video but will tell you it helps to talk to the staff about the video or use...More
