About
Pérez Art Museum Miami is a modern and contemporary art museum dedicated to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Established in 1984, the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) evolved from the Miami Art Museum, which grew out of the Center for the Fine Arts (CFA). The CFA opened to the public in 1984 as a partnership between Metropolitan Dade County Government and the Center for the Fine Arts Association Inc., a private 501(c) (3) corporation. In 1994, on the occasion of its tenth anniversary, the CFA's leadership determined to transform this County department from a space solely for temporary exhibitions into a private institution with a permanent collection dedicated to international art of the 20th and 21st centuries that reflected Greater Miami's diverse community and pivotal geographic location at the crossroads of the Americas.

This rate art museum
Nov 2021
In my opinion, the Perez museum is a third rate ‘World Class Museum’ imposter.
Unfortunately it is situated in a prime Miami location., and garners a great deal of undeserved publicity.
The Perez does not exhibit, high quality, unbiased, contemporary artwork.
In accordance with The Perez’s stated ethnic and racial partiality, The Perez primarily displays African, Latin, and Caribbean works of art. ( the best of the mediocre ? )
Do not waste your money.
P.S. Read the other reviews. Very few positive reviews, refer to the actual artwork.
The typical time spent at The Perez is about one hour and a half. That alone, should indicate the universal lack of interest in The Perez’s inferior presentation.

Ok but a bit sparse
Oct 2021 • Solo
The Perez Museum features contemporary art emphasizing Latin and Caribbean art. While I am not a great fan of such art, I found the collection a bit limited. There was an current exhibition of contemporary art from Africa which was so-so but the permanent collection was somewhat sparse. Having said that, there were nice Stella and Segal works and an interesting weaving by Igshaan Adams from South Africa. The museum itself , is set in a nice park overlooking the bay in downtown and is quite impressive from the outside. Admission is $16, seniors $12 and parking $15.

Mediocre collection, very small...lovely building
Sep 2021
Loved our dining experience in the cafe but was disappointed inside of the museum. We should have eaten there and then gone over to the Frost Science center next door...just saying. Maybe you could add some programs to give more oomph to the collection, etc

Don't miss this
Sep 2021
Don’t miss this. Took us about 90 minutes to enjoy the whole museum. Don’t miss the outdoor sculpture garden. Parking was $15. Super, amazingly friendly staff.

Rude and Unprofessional Museum Staff
Aug 2021 • Couples
It is unfortunate that this amazing collection of art is run by such a rude and unprofessional staff. The museum is not marked clearly but paying customers are not allowed to wander and view the art. There are attendants in each doorway eager to snap at you and tell you you’re not allowed to walk a certain way or enter a gallery until you’ve viewed many other galleries. The whole experience was extremely uncomfortable and made us want to leave. I did not shop at the gift shop because of it.

The Museum is not worth the visit. We had lunch outside with a very nice view of the Bay and Palms and area is very nice. They were renovating the hanging gardens on Palms

MODERN ART DISASTER, DONT WASTE YOUR TIME!
Jun 2021
BEWARE, THIS IS A "MODERN" ART MUSEUM! If your idea of "art" is random neon signs, stacked cinderblocks and empty wire chicken crates, then this is the museum for you! Staff was very friendly, but the "art" was AWFUL and really just a waste of time unfortunately. Also, parking garage is a VERY high $15 and see pictures for the nightmare of potholes you have to park in.

PAMM is perfect for kids
Apr 2021
It is good. My son and I went to that museum and saw good art. The PAMM museum is special to artists. People think it is boring, but can help children become better at things, help the brain, and people can know how these artists (ex. Meleko Mogoski, Teresita Fernandez, Felipe Mujica, etc) did art.

The most boring museum in the world
Mar 2021 • Couples
Very poor collection and exhibits. It is not art either contemporary or modern. The only thing that is on exhibit is political correctness: gender, race, etc. It is so boring ... do not waist your time.
